Celtic: Fans defend Kieran Tierney after ‘Bhoys’ boot message

Celtic: Fans defend Kieran Tierney after ‘Bhoys’ boot message - Celtic

He may no longer be at Celtic, but Kieran Tierney paid homage to his former club on his debut for Arsenal last night since his £25m move to London from Glasgow last month (as per BBC).

The Evening Times noted that the 22-year-old took to the pitch for Arsenal in the Carabao Cup clash against Nottingham Forest with the word ‘Bhoys’ on one of his boots, a reference to an informal term for Celtic.

The 22-year-old was the subject of a prolonged transfer saga between the two clubs this summer, with an initial bid of £15m being turned down in June (as per The Sun) and an improved £25m offer the following month also being rejected (as per BBC) before the transfer was finally made on August 9th.

These Celtic fans took to Twitter to stick up for Tierney for showing his support for the club:
