Kieran Tierney has been in impressive form for Arsenal this campaign. Kieran Tierney is afraid this season could be over for Arsenal and Scotland after picking up a knee injury on international duty.
In June, the left-back will need surgery, meaning he will miss out on Scotland’s vital World Cup play-off against Ukraine.
Tierney, 24, played full-time in Scotland’s international friendlies against Poland and Austria, registering an assist and a goal. Being one of Scotland’s key players, Tierney was set to be depended on as Scotland aimed to earn a spot for their first World Cup.
The Tartan Army must play Ukraine before going against Wales to earn a spot in Qatar if they emerge victorious against both teams. But the former Celtic star returned to the training ground with an injury, leaving doubt on the possibility of playing the rest of the campaign.
Tierney was not present in the squad for Arsenal’s visit to Crystal Palace, with Nuno Tavares replacing him. And the Scottish Sun reports that Tierney expects a long time on the sidelines and that his time undergoing treatment would mean he will miss Arsenal’s run-in as they look to book a European cup spot for the first time in six seasons.
