Former Arsenal striker Charlie Nicholas has criticised the level of ambition shown by Premier League giants Manchester United during the just concluded transfer window.

According to him via Metro UK, Manchester United should have hijacked the Kieran Tierney deal.

Charlie Nicholas further said that his compatriot and Scottish international Tierney is a better option than the ones at Manchester United.

Luke Shaw is the first choice left-back at Manchester United and the ex-Celtic star believes that Kieran Tierney is a better player than Luke Shaw.

Arsenal completed the signing of Kieran Tierney just before the Premier League transfer window ended on Thursday.

Kieran Tierney has signed a long-term contract at Arsenal after they agreed to a £25m deal with Celtic for him.

Arsenal and Celtic had been in talks for weeks before they agreed to a deal for him earlier this week.

Kieran Tierney came through the ranks at Celtic before he made his debut for the first team.

Since his debut, the Scottish international made 170 appearances for Celtic.

He was a key player for the Scottish Premiership champions for over four years.

Kieran Tierney was an important player for the Celtic squad that won three domestic trophies in each of the last three years.
