As he prepared for this evening’s game against Dundee at Parkhead, he said: “I’ve played seven 90 minutes in a row now, so I’m delighted with that.
“It means I still need to work hard in training and work my hardest to get picked at the weekend.
“It has been great for me. Every young boy’s dream is to play first-team football and I’ve been playing for weeks on weeks now, so, hopefully, it will continue.
“At the start of the season, I don’t think anyone would have thought I would have played 20-odd games.
“The season before it was Callum McGregor. He got a great run of games and that gave hope to us. I’ve just tried to work my hardest and now I’ve had a run.”
Tierney is looking to get back to winning ways against sixth-placed Dundee, who are unbeaten in seven, four of which are in the league.
He added: “We were disappointed we didn’t get three points against Hamilton.
“We’re looking forward to getting back to winning ways. Dundee will be a tough team to beat. They’ll come prepared and they’re a good, organised team, so they’ll be hard to break down.
“They have a few dangers up front and on the right wing, as well. If I’m playing left-back then I’ll have a lot to do.”
