The defender has spent the whole of his young footballing career at Celtic and he managed to break his way into the Brendan Rodger’s first-team during the 2015-16 season.
Tierney has never looked back and he is now one of the most important player in the Hoops squad, providing the team with an attacking threat from the full-back role.
The Scotland international was brilliant for Celtic last season, netting two goals and providing an impressive record of 12 assist across all competition, helping his side achieve a remarkable treble in his debut season in Scotland.
ex-Celtic player Chris Sutton posted his thought on his official Twitter account about the Tierney agreeing new terms with the club and he was delighted that the 20-year-old has committed his long-term future to the club.

Chris Sutton is right to be pleased with the idea of his former club offering Tierney a new deal. Tierney has been one of the most consistent players in Scotland over the last couple of years and his contract extension is completely merited. It is smart business as more teams have surely kept an eye on the full-back due to his impressive performances in the Champions League this season. Tierney will now be out to impress as the Hoops face a tough task when they welcome Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich to Celtic on Tuesday night. It is set to be a difficult night for the youngster but he has proved on numerous occasions that he is up to the challenge.
