    Heíll be a great signing for Arsenal. Very good left back.

    I dont think, in the current market, theyíve paid too much for him at all. In a year heíll be ďworthĒ a lot more Iím sure.

    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.

    Theyíve given him the number 3, so that would suggest they expect him to play I guess!

    Not sure I agree he's a great signing for Arsenal. Absolutely no arguments, Tierney is a cracking player, but his injury worries the past couple of seasons suggest he's a bit of a gamble.

    I hope I'm wrong and he goes on to play the full season, make a name for himself and become one of the best players in the league - that will be good for the Scotland team (even if he does play the same position as Robertson).

    Celtc will probably need to use the money to try and quickly get a new LB, as that Bolingoli looks absolutely howling.

    Guys a crock. Very good player but heíll never reach Robertsonís level due to never being able to stay fit.

    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.
    Maybe so but what helped them enormously was the serious under-selling of SJM and his now £50m valuation, thus allowing Celtic to hold out for a record fee.
    The SJM effect will prob continue and benefit the selling price of other Scottish based players eg McKenna.

    Iíve said this before but think heís over rated too.

    Old Firm hype like the made up Morelos bids.

    Iím interested to see how he will get on down south but Iíve watched him quite a few times and his right foot is awful. Yes I know Messi is all left but Messi is a genius.

    Teams in England and abroad will target him.

    Iím hoping Celtic donít spend silly money on McKenna giving Aberdeen funds to play with.

    Very harsh, last season yes, but for 2.5 seasons he virtually didn't miss a game. Best LB in the english Prem within 2 seasons for me, much higher ceiling than Robertson in terms of raw materials.

    Was harsh, yes. I used to think him and Robertson were hard to split (with Robertson being better going forward but maybe not as good defensively).

    I now think Robertson is the better player, and Tierney won't get better than him.

    Now they're both playing down there.. I hope they both continue to be brilliant and big players for Scotland. As it is right now, Robertson is rightly our left back and captain and I wouldn't necessarily shoe-horn Tierney into the team.

    Impossible to say. Tierney is only 22, and there is no way of telling how much he might kick on (as Robertson has done) now that he has moved to Arsenal.

    Tierney does seem better defensively, Robertson maybe better going forward (I mean this in the proper footballing sense, not the lazy Ďin the futureí use of the phrase).

    But they are both great players.

    Only worry for Arsenal is Tierneyís recent injuries.

    Not like you to exaggerate

    170 appearances for Celtic and 12 for Scotland, just turned 22 years old.

    IMHO Tierney is better than Robertson

    My only doubt as others have said is Tierneys fitness

    Did he pass a medical?

    If he is fit and ready to go and no injury hangover brilliant signing

    I cannot wait to see Robertson and Tierney lining up together for Scotland

    How would you line them up in the same side? Typical that two of our best players are in the same position.

    Just the 40 appearances last season. He'll also be rested more for Arsenal, not playing in Europa or league cup will help.

    Is he though? In the 4 seasons he's been in the celtc squad he's played over 30 games in each one, in the last two seasons he's played 55 games and 40 games. Now I know celtc play a lot of games in a season but I think I crock would play way less than that? Given he is 22 and played 170 games for them that is pretty good going for a crock. I think Arsenal have got a bargain myself, a 22 yo full back who is only going to get better, signed a contract until he is at his peak at 27.


    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    Tierney right back. We don't have one and I reckon he'd be better there than playing him centre half or with Robertson left wing.

    What a crock of ****.

    Maybe Arsenal will send him out on loan to see how he will improve before letting him loose on the EPL.

    I wouldn't say he is over rated but agree Celtic have done well with the fee.

    He had to go south to continue to develop and I wish him well

    40 out of how many? Celtic must play around 60+ games per season yet heís only managed 40 more than once. Thatís about one third of the games missed in 15/16, 16/17 and 18/19. Probably better, but not a kick in the arse off the games played/missed ratio that Dylan had at us.

    Heís 22 years old, has so far missed 46 games through injury and isnít due back until the season will probably be around 10-15 games in. 60 games missed at 22 years old. Thatís a hell of a lot of games to have missed due to numerous different injuries at that age. At this rate heíll have missed around 240+ games by the end of his career.

    I can see why you donít agree, Arsenal signed him at the end of the window when all the good players become available so itís pretty much a cert heíll be a success going by the good old BH logic.

    Why donít you just hold your hands up and accept that your opinion that Tierney is Ďa crockí is not supported by the evidence and therefore wrong?

    Iíve just provided ďevidenceĒ that heís going to have missed around 60 games injured by the age of 22 with numerous different injuries. Going by his previous record youíll no doubt be able to add another 5-10 before the seasons out and before he hits 23. The guy has had 3 fairly substantial injuries already. Ruptured ankle ligaments, groin surgery and his hip problem which keeps on re-occurring and has on more than one occasion kept him out for a matter of months. Crock.

    I actually donít even mind the guy. But his injury record is brutal for a 22 year old.

    More sheite, good players are available all through the transfer window, but certain players become available later in the window, even someone as thick as you should understand that.
    Aye of course BH. Youíve changed your tune now. Thank god we waited for the good players last year so that we could ďbuild a team to qualify for Europe every yearĒ as you told us.
