Despite reports to the contrary, Celtic have not received a bid for Kieran Tierney and are not impressed by media attempts to unsettle the squad. Kieran recently signed a six-year contract. Celtic expect the player to be an integral part of team building over the next several years. Having only just turned 21, they also expect his value to continue to appreciate.
Celtic do not have to sell and do not want to sell. We are a well managed club with money available to fulfill strategic plans. We have recruitment plans and budget in place for this summer; we are not planning to recruit a first choice left back or spend an unexpected windfall. This attention is unwelcome and a distraction from Champions League preparations.
I also hear Kieran’s agent is relaxed with the player at Celtic and not agitating for a move. I suspect Everton have let their trusted outlets know they are interested in the player, but it has not gone beyond that stage.
