Pundit reckons Tierney was messaging Arteta with his celebration against FC Zurich

Kieran Tierney has struggled to play for Arsenal regularly this season and he was delighted to have scored in their game against FC Zurich last night.

The left-back should be the second choice after Oleksandr Zinchenko, but when the Ukrainian is unfit to play, Mikel Arteta fields Takehiro Tomiyasu out of position as a left-back.

The Scotsman took his chance against Zurich and scored the only goal of the game.

After scoring, he celebrated widely and former Arsenal man, Martin Keown, believes the celebration is a message to his gaffer.

‘[On goal] It is a message about the strength of the squad but also a message to the manager isn’t it? to say ‘I am here if you need me,’ Keown said on BT Sport via The Daily Mail.

‘He may well have to play now. It is a real shame that Tomiyasu came on and got injured but look what is in reserve.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tierney remains one of our most important players even though he is not playing as often as he would like.

We need him in the squad and other competitions will soon be added to our calendar.

If he stays fit, he will get more chances to play and he needs to keep working hard in training to give the manager a selection headache.

  1. I asked in another thread what Tierney’s celebration was about – a bit weird, he seemed to be licking or kissing his wristband?

    Hard to interpret that really, but of course, a pundit reads Tierney’s mind.

  2. Time to sell IMO
    He’s fit and well but does not fit Artetas set up .
    An old school left back who on average misses 19 games per season ,time to move him on while he’s fit .
    Could get 20 million to reinvest.

    1. I agree time tomove him on but 20mil is a bit low tbh and it would need to be reinvested into a 1st choice lb.
