After the cup final I think
Credit card roulette
4 years into his first team career, and he still hasn't lost that joy of being a fan living out his dreams. Love this bloke, and the way he connects with the fans.
KT: I've been training two days this week so I'm feeling okay."
KT on motivation: "Every trophy is better than the last. It's the best feeling in the world. So we don't need any extra motivation."
KT: "To give a trophy back to the fans is what we want. We know they spend their hard-earned money coming to see us, so it would be nice to be able to repay that."
KT: "It's one more big push from the players. We have a great changing room of guys who are up for it. We're fighting for a cause and we're fighting for Celtic."
Feeling ok! Just let him get the surgery ffs!
He’s getting it.
Kieran Tierney is fit to play in the Scottish Cup final but has confirmed he will miss Scotland's Euro 2020 qualifying double header against Cyprus and Belgium.
The Celtic full-back is to have a double hernia operation after Saturday's showpiece with Hearts.
It means he will not feature in new Scotland head coach Steve Clarke's first game against Cyprus at Hampden on 8 June, or away to Belgium three days later.
"You're frustrated, you want to go away, you want to make an impression with the new manager," Tierney said.
"But I need to think of myself long-term as well and the best thing is to get the operation as soon as I can."
Tierney last played on May 4 as Celtic clinched an eighth straight title with victory over Aberdeen at Pittodrie.
He has made 40 appearances in all competitions for Celtic but barely featured between the middle of December and February due to an injury, originally thought to be to his hip.
"It started off as something else and then from that it led to this, but it's nothing long-term, the operation will fix it and that's the good news," Tierney said, adding his expected recovery time is "three to six weeks", meaning he should be fit to play in Celtic's Champions League qualifiers in early July.
Scotland lie fifth in Euro 2020 qualifying Group I, having lost to Kazakhstan and beaten San Marino in their opening two matches.
Clarke will name his first squad next week ahead of the next double header.
Though Tierney will now be absent, he says he is looking forward to working with the former Kilmarnock boss.
"The positivity surrounding Steve Clarke and what he's done at Kilmarnock is amazing for the whole country and for him to be the national team manager is only a good thing," he said.
"What he's done is incredible so hopefully it can happen with the national team as well, we can take steps forward and put up more of a fight," Tierney added.
Shouldn't be playing on Saturday either.
We should chuck it if we can't get by hearts without KT.
