Gordon says this Celtic defender can even play goalkeeper

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has said that his team-mate Kieran Tierney is so good that he could even play as a goalkeeper.

Despite being only 20 years old, Tierney has already established himself as a key player for both the Hoops and the Scottish national team and helped his club win the domestic treble unbeaten last season.

He was also handed the captains armband for his countries narrow defeat at the hands of the Netherlands on Thursday.

Gordon believes that Tierney is such a good all round player that his performances will not be affected even if he had to be used out of his preferred position at left back.

“I don’t really know what his best position is because he can do anything,” said Gordon. “I want to give him a shot of the gloves and see if he can do that as well! I’m sure he could because every position he plays he does exceptionally well.

“He is just a terrific footballer. He is good enough to go and play in midfield as well. It doesn’t matter where he is asked to play. He always gives everything he’s got.”
