van Dijk makes admission which will please Celtic fans

Southampton star Virgil van Dijk has said that Celtic sensation Kieran Tierney is in no rush to leave Scotland.

Despite being only 20 years old, Tierney has established himself as an important player for the Bhoys as well as the Scotland national team and he helped his club win a domestic unbeaten treble last season.

As a result of his impressive performances, Tierney has been linked with Manchester United who may soon need to sign a replacement for Luke Shaw as well as Tottenham and Liverpool.

Van Dijk, who is a former player of Celtic, thinks that the youngster should not focus on a Premier League move at this point in time but should rather focus on continuing his development at Celtic.

“He’s [Tierney] been doing very well and I think Celtic are very smart to tie him down for the next six years,” Van Dijk was quoted as saying by the Sunday Post. “It’s good to see him as the captain as well.

“I can remember that day he made his debut at Dundee. Since then he has been progressing every game. He was the captain of his country and that’s very special at 20 years old.

“I don’t even know if he wants to go to the Premier League. Celtic is an amazing club for him as well and I don’t think there is any rush for him to leave.”
