Pundit cry foul over kieran Tierney decision


Football Insider writer Alan Hutton has suggested that Celtic manager Neil Lennon will be unhappy to have his request to play Ryan Christie for a league game while the North London outfit were able to have Kieran Tierney for the Premier League game against Man City.

It would be recalled that both players were part of the Wales national team during the international break where Stuart Armstrong tested positive and that they should have been isolated according to authorized protocols.

After insisting that players who had contacts with Stuart Armstrong should be isolated, the Gunners battled to have Kieran Tierney back in the team for the Man City game and that has been translated to be unfair to Celtic who was unable to make use of his player.

Ryan Christie missed the derby game against Rangers where his tea, lost by 2-0, and the football pundit claim that Celtic boss would be angry especially learning that the arsenal man was in action the same weekend.

However, the North London outfit ended up losing 1-0 against Man City with the presence of Kieran Tierney and that remains a setback to the team as they now prepare to play the Europa League on Thursday.
