It’s no secret that Brendan Rodgers’ side has stalled somewhat this season. They’ve made a poor start to the Scottish Premier League and currently sit 5th, six points behind league leaders, Hearts. However, things aren’t all bad, only seven games have been played and 21-year-old Kieran Tierney has been keen to remind the fans that no one has ever won a league title after seven games.
KT: “Who’s ever won the league after 7 games? It’s still very early.”

Tierney will likely be starting tomorrow night in Austria when the Bhoys travel to face RB Salzburg in their second Europa League group stage match after beating Rosenborg 1-0 at Parkhead in their opener a couple of weeks back. After the clash in Europe, it’s back to domestic business for Rodgers’ team as they then face a trip to St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park in the Scottish Premier League on Sunday.
Also on Sunday, Celtic’s Old Firm rivals, Rangers will be hosting Hearts at Ibrox and it could be a great opportunity for the Bhoys to either make up ground on the league leaders or pull further away from their Glasgow rivals if they do manage a win against St Johnstone. It won’t be easy for Tierney and co but as the young defender has pointed out, it’s still early in the season and anything can happen with loads of games left to play.

I don't get the panic. Every team in every league has a slump. This is our first in 3 years, we're still in every comp, so called slump out the way before Oct and a transfer window still to come. We are going to click into gear in a big bad way, while others struggle. #hailhail
