Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney has signed a new six-year contract.

A number of Premier League clubs have been credited with interest in Tierney but the Scottish champions have announced he has committed himself to Parkhead until the summer of 2023.

The 20-year-old is closing in on 100 first-team appearances for his boyhood heroes.

Tierney's previous deal was due to expire in 2021. He signed a five-year contract days after Brendan Rodgers spoke to him about extending his stay after his first training session in June last year.

The Scotland international, who joined Celtic aged seven, had previously signed a four-year deal in August 2015.
