Man Utd target talks up 'long-term' Celtic future

16th April 2018, 17:37 by Simon Barlow

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has tried to quell speculation in the media that he could leave Parkhead in the near future.

The Scotland international has been strongly linked with a transfer to Manchester United, who are desperate to add a quality left-back to their squad this summer.

But the Hoops star has been quick to reaffirmed his commitment to the Scottish champions after a weekend of transfer talk.

"I'm not thinking about anyone other than Celtic just now," Tierney told The Times.

"I'm enjoying my career here; I've just signed a six-year deal, so if that doesn't say long-term, I don't know what does."

Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho was spotted in Glasgow last month for Scotland's friendly match against Costa Rica, but he didn't see Tierney play after he withdrew with an injury.

United reportedly sent a scout to Hampden on Sunday to witness Celtic's 4-0 demolition of Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
