Tuesday Round-Up: KT ‘Buzzing’ As He Signs New Long Term Contract

Celtic v Juventus X
Chris Sutton celebrates scoring against Juventus on this day in 2001

THE BIG STORY: Kieran Tierney has described his delight at penning a new six year contract at Celtic, ‘it’s amazing’ he told the press yesterday.

The young left-back is contracted until 2023...but I would be shocked if he stayed at Celtic until then. No doubt he loves the club but if a huge bid comes in then Celtic would have to consider selling him.

KT’s attention will now turn to tonight’s encounter with Bayern Munich and Dedryck Boyata is confident that Celtic will turn in a far better performance than we did in Munich a fortnight ago.

We’ll have our usual match reports and player ratings up after the game, and you can read our match preview here.

ON THIS DAY: In 2001 Celtic defeated Juventus 4-3 in a legendary Champions League Group Stage encounter at Celtic Park. Chris Sutton scored a brace with Henrik Larsson and Joos Valgaeren also chipping in with goals. Despite the win, Celtic failed to qualify for the next stage of the competition and dropped into the UEFA Cup.
