Tierney world class?

over hyping average players is what the yahoos do aided and abetted by an attentive press!
Wasn't so long ago Biton was world class also

Then there was

Kayal , Izaqueerie, Stefan Johanson , Gary Hooper , Tom Rogic ....

The list is endless , that's the Scottish press for you

Remember when they said Izaguirre would be off to Man Utd for £15m+, this will be another case of that where he does alright for them, they say he's worth silly money and he either stays and becomes a mainstay in their team, or goes off to the likes of West Brom.

No one playing in Scotland is world class. If they were they'd be playing in a decent league. It really is that simple.

Not world class, but a very good left back.

Pains me to admit it, but possibly the best left back to have played in Scotland since Arthur Numan.

No point in kidding ourselves.

As for the rest of their back four. .... well that's a different story.
We can definitely get at them.
He's not even half the player Sasa Papac was in all honesty. I'd argue he's not been as good as Izaguirre was for them when he first arrived either.

Some of the other "newspaper" quotes are so funny

Daily Mail - Scott Brown will have to be at his best in order to put the shackles on Neymar

Daily Mail - Just look at the attacking options Rodgers has; Scott Sinclair, Patrick Roberts and James Forrest. Leigh Griffiths, Odsonne Edouard and, perhaps, Moussa Dembele. That's a front line which will create chances and take them.

Daily Mail - Celtic geared up for the Champions League encounter with a convincing win over Hamilton

Has PSG put a bid in for him yet ? £20 million should just be enough to prise him away from C*llic.
No laughing there at the back !

A friend of a friend who's a beggar dropped it in to conversation around CL semi final time last season, that only Mbappe and Dybala were better younger players in Europe than Tierney was at that time. Seemed genuinely taken aback at our ridicule of his claim.

The mind of the yahoo is a strange place.

He must have forgotten about Andy Robertson.

Yep mate would agree Papac was a better FB.

Stand corrected on that.

As I've said previously, he's a good player, but never in a million years world class.
Yeah I think he's decent Tbh and lets not forget he's still a boy in relative terms i think hes a cut above in scottish terms but there is a gulf between where he is and European level never mind world as evidenced on a most enjoyable last evening

The clamour by the dhims and media alike (same thing really) to elevate him to world class status is hilarious.
I heard some walloper compare him to Sandy Jardine and Danny McGrain ffs!!!
I only saw the goals on the news last night but it looked like he was 10-15 yards off the pace/out of position for Mbappe's goal. Surely any player who is as good as we are told he is would have relished last night and stood out?
Ralston also deserves a mention for his embarrassing windmill run as he trailed in Neymar's wake at the first goal.
I'm sure the dhims will have the "they're only kids excuses" out again that is until the next time one of them scores against Ross County or similar and the fantastical claims will start again...

How the mhedia change their tune ,...from talking up the value of individual sellick players eg Dembele £40 million to ludicrous amounts for other poops ....the spin is now the team that Brenda put together for less than £20 milllion against the extravagant free spending Frenchmen.Life is a bitch ,eh.

Sorry thats just a ridiculous assumption
What's ridiculous about it? It's a fairly accurate observation. We have a terrible league, terrible national team. Scottish players do not have the drive to be the very best. Do you honestly think we have Scottish players wiling to give up as much as Ronaldo has to become one of the greatest players ever.

Scottish coaching at young ages is that far behind everyone else it's almost impossible for the players to catch up with players from mainland Europe.

As an aside, HTF do people know whether he's world class or even any good?

I wouldn't know him if he ws sitting beside me and I dont remember any standout moments against us? If he was good in the abortion of a last game at Ibrox then obviously I've wiped it from the memory banks

I cant believe anything that any "mheeja" in Scotland say as they have been repeatedly shown to be TWATS.

So is he really any good?

Was thinking the same for last couple of years they've been valuing every player at upwards of 10 mil, now media are downplaying it after the biggest pummelling I have ever seen.

Tierney is decent within scottish football, however thats it. I see as well they're trying to flog Ralston to Everton for £10m, along with their friends in the meda, despite him getting ripped a new one on Tuesday night. Celtics PR machine is their biggest asset.

Tbf better players than him will get torn to shreds by m'bappe over the next few years. He's a good player up here but he'd probably be a decent EPL player at best...Maybe for Southampton, which is inevitably where he'll end up.

He looks to be decent. Admittedly I don't watch them at all really but I thought for Scotland recently he looked good against poor opposition. And let's face, other than possibly games against Hayes for Aberdeen, he was probably defensively untroubled in most games last season.

I am looking forward to seeing candieas up against him as I suspect in our previous meetings he hasn't had much to contend with. Certainly in the last game our lack of an effective outlet on the right allowed him, Sinclair and thumb head to bully tav and win every second ball.

That said, I expect Brendan knows this and will switch the pressure down the other wing. We need to be prepared for this.

He's decent enough, but anyone referring to any Scottish based player as world class is mental, regardless of who they're playing for

Given that Scotland has only produced a handful of genuinely world class players in 100 years, it's fair to assume he's not.

Of course he's not. He's a decent player at the moment. Still quite young and should get better, mind you. Hopefully he does that elsewhere, obviously

Decent player no doubt about that. Was overhyped at the start and got didnt cover himself in glory against the better teams but has undoubtedly improved and was motm for me against England.

Would be interesting to see him more tested every week.

They will get a few quid for him but when talking to tims i compare with Robertson. A player that had proven himself in the Epl, still young and only went for 10m
