KIERAN TIERNEY has admitted he loved sitting with the Celtic supporters at Ibrox during the team’s 2-1 win on New Year’s Eve.
Goals from Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair gave the champions their third derby win of the season and rounded off a perfect end to 2016 for Brendan Rodgers and his players.
Tierney, who has since recovered from the injury that kept him out for three months, mingled with fans during the game and he believes that experience has helped to continue the strong bond he enjoys with the Hoops’ followers.
He said: “I hadn’t been at Ibrox as a fan for a good few years.
“To be back there on Hogmanay, especially with the win, was brilliant. I was in the Celtic tracksuit, I went with the squad. They were singing my name.
“We were in the front row, they’ve turned round and seen me and some of the other boys.
“I think the fans realise I support Celtic, just like them. They’ve seen that in other games – Partick Thistle away and Kilmarnock away.”
He added: “I was just turning up as normal to support my team and it felt good.
“I was still watching it at Ibrox as a fan, but I was watching what the full-backs were doing, just so you can learn.
“You may as well use it as a benefit when you are out.”
