Arsenal look set to sell the Celtic hero this summer transfer window.

Former Tottenham and West Ham boss Harry Redknapp reckons there’s a role for Celtic hero Kieran Tierney at Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta looks set to sell the defender this summer after time out on loan at Real Sociedad. Arsenal signed the star from Celtic in 2019 for £25m and after initially impressing, injuries contributed to him falling out of favour. Rumours of a Celtic return refuse to go away while Premier League teams are linked.

Redknapp is a big fan of the star currently out with Scotland at Euro 2024. He believes there is still a role for him at the Emirates, as the former manager sent some transfer advice to player and club. Redknapp told the Scottish Sun of the Celtic hero: “I thought Kieran Tierney was going to be a great player for Arsenal.

“When he first arrived I thought, ‘What a player this kid is’. He reminded me a little bit of Stuart Pearce back in the day. When he first came along, I thought the two best left-backs in the league were both Scottish, Tierney and Andy Robertson.

“I’m really disappointed as it looks like he has to leave Arsenal now. I still think Tierney could do a good job for them. They could do with a proper left-back for me. I’d like to see him get his career back on track at a club that appreciates him.

“From what I’ve seen of Tierney, I believe that Arsenal would be making a big mistake letting him go.”
