    Tierney

    Does £25 million make him the most expensive Scottish player? I think he will prove a bargain for Arsenal; terrific young player. Who are the other expensive Scottish players?

    Oliver Burke was the record before KT, £15m I think. SJM will cost more than him and Tierney combined (hopefully)

    I believe so. Then again, how much did Robertson cost Liverpool?

    Gordon went for £9M from Hearts to Sunderland. Hutton went from Rangers to Spurs for the same fee as well, I believe?

    Robertson was 10mill I think. Mcburnie just signed for 20mill which is a joke.

    Denis Law joined Torino for £110,000 in 1961, which in 2018 prices (Bank of England calculator) is £2,405,275.59. Denis Law for under £2.5 million, how's that for a bargain!

    Oli McBurnie broke the record just last week for £20M.

    When we sold Broony for £4 million, it seemed like a fortune. Celtc got a bargain.

    Not as much a bargain as Villa got SJM for, saying that, glad of reported sell on clause and even more glad he's not warming bench for deluded celtic.

    Very true. He signed a new long term contract with Villa today, but there's a good chance he will move for big money at some stage.

    Just shows you how utterly mental the transfer market has gone.

    What makes me chuckle is whilst celtic fans said he was a squad player, 1 year on rumoured values are higher than the cost of celtics first team, its a beautiful thing!

    If he can have a good season in the Premier League, a huge bid from one of the really big boys is very likely. That would be the dream ticket for us.

    Agreed, and I'm confident it will happen!

    Fine player & going to a great club, worth every £.

    I think hes highly over rated and will be out on loan in a couple of seasons, Celtic have played a blinder for the fee though.

    If he can stay fit then he will definitely have the resources, coaching and experience to develop into a top player. The atmosphere around Arsenal is the best itís been in a while just now following this window therefore the fans will probably be patient with him too.

    They have. And if they donít win the league by a mile the next two years thereís something seriously wrong. And if they qualify for the champions league the money they get will widen the already huge gap even further.

    Well done to young Tierney though, really hope he does well

    25M is virtually nothing in that market, and looks a bargain.

    Same amount Tottenham paid for player two years younger but had a year in EPL. He should have gone two years ago but was loyal to Celtic. Good player wish him well.

    I think Tierney is a great wee player.

    When we beat Celtic 2-0 last season we had so much success down their left hand side and exploited Izzaguire ruthlessly. In the Scottish Cup game when the score was reversed Tierney played and we got nothing like the same freedom to play. He also nullified any attacking threat we had from right full back because he's such a good out ball and so willing to get forward.

    He probably needs a change of scenery and to step up a level to kick on again, you could argue his development has stalled a bit at Celtic. Going back a couple of years there probably wasn't a lot to choose between Tierney and Robertson but Robertson playing against top level opposition every week at Hull and Liverpool has pushed him on to another level. If Tierney can stay fit there's no reason why he can't do the same, he has all the natural ability to make it in England imo.

    Most amusing thing is all the Celtic fans (mainly on twitter) greeting that heís not a true Celtic fan for not being part of ď10 in a rowĒ... as if they would all turn down 6 figures a week to play premier league football.

    Decent move for Tierney but Iím trying to work out if he will be starting 11 or squad player for Arsenal.

    Do you actually think that ? Did the 22 goals in the English Championship last season just happen by luck?

    To be honest this whole debacle has just made me dislike Celtic even more. 25M for Teirney but they refuse to pay the proper price to any other Scottish club.

    Iíve admittedly not seen much of him. But he has looked rank when Iíve saw him. Admittedly his stats from last season would suggest otherwise though.

    Hope he does well however he has struggled recently with injury so wouldn't say it was a certainty he will hit the ground running.
