Kieran Tierney is a man after our own hearts and so far for the Bhoys he’s done a wonderful job of winning them.
It’s easy to forget that he is still a kid when you look at some of his colossal displays at left-back in both the league and in Europe.
He’s been mighty for Scotland, too, and to genuinely compete with Andy Robertson who is in the Champions League final, underlines just how good a player he’s going to be.
It’s easy to say that, though, but when you really look at his stats you get a far better appreciation for what sort of player he is – via Focus On Celtic:

These stats certainly blew me away when I looked through them in earnest.
It’s safe to say he’s already achieved a lot and perhaps the most impressive number of all is the one at the top, his age.
He’s nowhere near his peak and, surely, we’re going to see him only get better.
