Tierney backed to make impact at Arsenal

Kieran Tierney has been backed by former boss and Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers to make an impact at Arsenal. 

Tierney joined Arsenal in the summer from Celtic for a reported fee of £25m and Rodgers managed the left-back before departing for Leicester last February. The Scottish ace will be leading the Gunners on Saturday when they take on Leicester at King Power Stadium on Saturday 9th. 

"As a player, in the first week working with him, I could see after two or three days why there was a lot of clamour for him. From that moment he was absolutely brilliant for me. He became stronger, more powerful, very aggressive in his game," he said.

"He worked hard every single day but he was also a strong boy mentally, and he had a lot of good mentors. Scott Brown was an incredible captain for me, and he [Tierney] took on that mantle to try and be like him."

"Every day in training he was very focused on becoming better, and obviously he loved Celtic as a club. He supported the club, and that gave him that extra one percent every time he played.

"So as a player he was fantastic, and he captained the team for me on a few occasions as well, but also a great boy, very humble, just wanting to be the very best he can be."

The match will kick off at 8:30 PM EAT.
