Celtic captain Scott Brown is convinced Kieran Tierney will come good for Arsenal.
Arsenal has been assured that in Kieran Tierney they have a fantastic full-back that has all the tools he needs to succeed.
The Gunners signed Tierney from Celtic in the summer and the Scotland International has been working his way back to fitness following a lengthy injury.
Brown was saddened when Tierney moved to London over the summer, but he admits that the 22 years old made the move at just about the right time.
Tierney hasn’t had the fastest starts to his career at Arsenal with Unai Emery easing him back into the setup after a long injury layoff, and Brown believes the club’s fans will soon get a glimpse of what he is about.
Speaking exclusively to talkSPORT’s James Savundra, the Celtic skipper said: “He’s a fantastic full-back, he’s got everything you could ask for.
“He’s got pace, he’s got strength, he’s got that drive inside him that wants to win.
“He had that at Celtic, he showed his qualities and that’s why Arsenal wanted him.
“I was sad to see him go because he’s a great player and a great friend as well, but it was the right time.
“He will kick on and show everyone what a quality player he is.”
I think we have already seen glimpses of what Tierney can do. However, it is reassuring to read these comments from Brown. He obviously knows the defender well and knows first-hand what he is capable of.
We have not seen the best from him but that is because he is clearly not yet back to full match fitness. But with the games he has already played under his belt and this international break there has to be a high chance we will very shortly see the lads true potential.
Hopefully, Unai Emery will utilise Tierney more often because we will need him at his best with so many tough games coming up.
