KIERAN TIERNEY has revealed the item that topped his Christmas wish-list – a Celtic Centenary strip.
The 20-year-old left-back’s rapport with the Hoops fans is obvious and KT was pictured in Tenerife recently waering the classic top.
He admitted: “I asked for that Celtic strip for my Christmas. My mum and dad always bring stuff in for me to sign for people and I saw the centenary strip.
“I tried it on and I thought it was a belter, so I asked them to get me one for Christmas. That was the only thing I asked for.
“I got a bit of a slagging for it, but I thought: ‘Do people not know I’m a Celtic fan?’
“In every interview I mention I’m a Celtic fan and I get slagged for wearing a Celtic strip!
“When people come to see you on holiday, it means a lot. I said to the owner of the bar that if I was on holiday and had the chance to meet a Celtic player, I’d be buzzing.
“It would probably make my holiday. I’m not saying I made their holiday, but if I have the opportunity to do that for someone then I always will.”

Paul John Dykes and Kevin Graham are joined by Celtic’s ex-director, Tom Grant, who offers a fascinating insight into the running of the club in the 1980s and 1990s.
Tom Grant explains exactly why Celtic refused to complete the Mo Johnston transfer in 1989, and lifts the lid on audacious efforts by Billy McNeill to recruit Peter Beardsley and Steve Bruce.
Tom Grant also dissects his relationship with Fergus McCann, and the impact of the ‘Celts For Change’ movement in overturning the ‘family dynasty’ board in 1994.
