KIERAN TIERNEY is delighted all the multi-million pound transfer talk has not affected 27-goal Moussa Dembele.

And the Celtic left-back is relieved the January transfer window has closed and everyone at the champions can concentrate on the domestic silverware sweep.

The 19-year-old international defender said: “Moussa has been brilliant for us and everyone knows what he has done.

“He has shone in every competition we have played in.

“My team-mate has a target in his head that he wants to get to this season – but he isn’t letting anyone know what it is!

“He obviously had a number in his head at the start of the campaign and he is keen to get to it, but we are just delighted with the way he has been banging in the goals.

“He is scoring goals for fun just now and it’s great to see.

“It is ideal now that the window is closed because it means that the talk is more about what is happening on the park.

“We have kept all our players and that gives us the best chance possible as we look to go forward and be as successful as we possibly can be this season.”

Tierney has also attracted interest from elsewhere. However, the teenager agreed a new long-term deal at the Hoops in the summer and is not interested in quitting his boyhood idols.

He said: “I just concentrate on playing football. I don’t really take any notice of the other stuff.

“It is just about training as hard as I can and playing for Celtic. That was my dream growing up and it is amazing to be able to go out and do that.”
