Celtic fanatic Kieran Tierney admits he dreams of focusing solely on being a full-time hoops supporter after his career ends.

The 23-year-old is a key man for Arsenal in the Premier League, but he admits that seeing the former side hang up his boots on a weekly basis is the perfect plan

Gunners supporters hope this doesn’t happen anytime soon as Tierney establishes himself as a star under Mikel Arteta’s guidance

But the Scottish international admits that he doesn’t get too far in front of himself when asked if he’ll see himself in the dugout at the end of his game days

Speaking to Leeds on the Arsenal matchday program ahead of the game, he said: “I’ve been thinking about it but it’s hard to say it’s that far away

“It hasn’t crossed my mind to get coaching badges or anything like that. Some of the older players are talking about it and doing the qualifications You probably think more about it when you’re over 30, but before that it’s all about your career as a gamer

“I’ll be back anyway and do something

“I will definitely be living in Scotland when I’m percent done”I miss it every day”
