CONFIDENT Bhoy Kieran Tierney insists Celtic will play with no fear when they face Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Anderlecht in the Champions League.
The Hoops were drawn against the title winners of Germany, France and Belgium, but the Scotland international full-back remains positive as the Parkhead men prepare for a thrilling Group B section.
Tierney said: “We know we’ll be coming up against top-class players, but we won’t go in nervous or with any fear.
“Every European game is a big pressure occasion. You want to get into the Champions League and the qualifying games are pressure games, but we dealt with that and now we’re here.
“The high-pressure games we play in like semi-finals and Cup Finals give us great experience for moments like this.
“You saw what happened last year in the group. We had Manchester City and we drew with them twice, so it gives us confidence.
“Last year was the first taste of Champions League football for a lot of us and it’s good experience going into this season.
“We’re always confident – and why not? We’re here for a reason. We’ve done well in the qualifiers, so we’ll go in there confident, work hard on the training ground and do our best.
”It’s a hard draw, but you’re going to get that in the Champions League and we’re looking forward to it.”
