Celtic’s Kieran Tierney admitted to being surprised by his recent captaincy of Scotland.

The 20-year-old left-back was handed the armband for the single-goal friendly defeat to the Netherlands at Pittodrie despite it being only his ninth cap, although he has previously led his club.

“It was an incredible feeling when the gaffer told me he was going to make me captain,” Tierney told BBC Scotland.”I was surprised, I am so young, but it’s great faith he showed in me and I really appreciate that.

“It’s a massive honour,” he added. “That’s me captained club and country and it doesn’t get much bigger than that. I’m really grateful for the chances I have been given.”
