  • Tierney: Still room for improvement after Euro progress

    Tierney: Still room for improvement after Euro progress

    By: Tony Connelly on 05 Dec, 2017 23:41

  • KIERAN Tierney says Celtic will be determined to give the Hoops faithful the show that they deserve when they return to European action after Christmas.

    Celtic achieved their aim of securing European football after the winter break with their third-place finish in Group B of the UEFA Champions League. In doing so they will enter the last 32 stage of the UEFA Europa League.

    Despite attaining the goal which Brendan Rodgers set for the team at the beginning of the season, Tierney admitted he and his team-mates were disappointed by the 1-0 defeat to Anderlecht in the final game in the group.

    Speaking exclusively to the Celtic website after the game, Tierney said: “We’re through. That was the main aim. Of course, we’d like to play much better, there’s no doubt about it. We’d like to put on a show for the fans who support us thick and thin and come everywhere with us.

    “We’re disappointed but we have European football after Christmas and at the start, that’s what we wanted.

    “I think after tonight we need to try and improve in every area. It wasn’t our best game, we know that. When you’re 3-0 up going into the game it’s different mentally.

    "You saw that in Astana, we went over there and we were already winning. Games like that are different but we’ll learn from this, the boys have defended well and we go through.”

    Tierney also hailed captain Scott Brown, who surpassed Kenny Dalglish to become the Scotsman with the most top-tier European appearances when he featured against the Brussels side. 

    “He’s a club legend,” said Tierney. “It’s brilliant for me to work under him as a player and learn from him. I’m learning from the best.

    “Tonight Broony dug in as he always does and he was brilliant. He’s solid for us in the middle of the park and he demands the best from us and we all work hard as a team for him.”
