Here in this article, you’ll learn all you’ve wanted to know about Kieran Tierney, including his career details, his age, his net worth, and much more.
Let’s get started.
Kieran Tierney Biography/Early Life
Kieran Tierney was born on 5th June 1997, at the Isle of Man, Douglas, but was relocated to Wishaw, Scotland, barely 10 months after his birth. He was born to Michael and Gail Tierney, who birthed Tierney and one other child.
Tierney was a supporter of Celtic as a child and always dreamed to play for the club. In addition to dreaming, he also took a realistic step towards achieving this dream by enrolling in the Celtic Football Academy at the age of seven.
As a kid, his dad made sure that the whole family had the Celtic season ticket, and they’ll watch virtually every Celtic match being played. Tierney particularly had a special love for Celtic that every Christmas, he’ll ask for a Celtic jersey, rather than other expensive Christmas gifts. What wasn’t known at that time was that he would later grow to become one of the most successful Celtic players.
Kieran Tierney had primary education at St. Brendan’s RC Primary, after which he moved on to Our Lady’s High School in Motherwell. He must have had a very delicious education as his mother was a dinner lady for his school!
Kieran Tierney had a desire to become a footballer, but his teacher wouldn’t let him pick that as a career. His teacher suggested that he become a “Joiner”, or something of that sort, instead.
However, Tierney wouldn’t have that, and he was prepared to go the extra mile to show his teacher that football is a valid career choice after all. Driven by this, Kieran Tierney joined St. Ninian’s High School in Kirkintilloch. This school had a partnership with Celtic FC and was instrumental in Tierney finally featuring for the Celtic Football Club.
Kieran Tierney Career
Tierney started his career at 7 when he signed onto Celtic FC. In a bid to accelerate the growth of his career in football, Tierney got enrolled in St. Ninian’s High School, which had developed ties with the Celtic FC.
He played for Celtic almost his youth career, appearing for most of their underage teams. He was widely known for his skills and versatility, both in the defensive and offensive parts of the game.
Kieran Tierney didn’t get to feature for the senior teams until he was 17, when he traveled alongside the team on a pre-season tour, playing his debut match in a defeat to Tottenham Hotspur. Although the results of the match weren’t impressive, there was a 17-year-old guy in the Celtic team that saw the defeat as a dream come true. Even after the debut, the Celtic FC coach didn’t see Kieran Tierney fit enough to feature regularly for the first team yet, so he continued to play in the development team.
22nd April 2015, was a remarkable day for the footballer, as he got to feature in his first competitive senior match for Celtic FC Against Dundee when he was brought in as an 81st-minute substitute.
The season after that, his feats seem to impress the Celtic coach as he enjoyed a breakthrough season, featuring in over 30 matches and making good players sit back on the bench. Fortunately, Celtic FC won the league title with his contributions, and he was awarded a contract that should keep him in Celtic until 2021, as a compensation. However, that was not to be as the player got acquired by Arsenal FC in 2019 in a record fee for a Scottish.
He enjoyed a beautiful start with the Arsenal team early on, helping them thrash Nottingham Forest by a whopping 5 goals margin. A week later, he registered his first assist for the club in a 4-0 win against Standard Liege.
He didn’t get to feature in the highly prestigious English Premier League until October 27, when he helped Arsenal play out a one-all draw with Crystal Palace. However, he didn’t get to enjoy the rest of the year on the pitch, due to a dislocated shoulder.
Internationally, Tierney has already featured for and captained, Scotland at the senior levels. He is easily one of the best Scottish players; a fact that was justified by his transfer to Arsenal.
He started from the U-18 and U-19 levels but was soon invited to the first team by mid-2016. He has featured for Scotland in a few tournaments and has captained them once, but the experiences are nothing to write home about.
