Kieran Tierney has been named in the UEFA Champions League Team of the Week.
The 20-year-old was in impressive form during Celtic’s 3-0 win over Anderlecht and supplied the cross for Leigh Griffiths to open the scoring in Brussels.
Tierney is in illustrious company with three Spurs players, two from Paris Saint Germain and two from Manchester United selected by the panel of UEFA coaches and judges.

Since his display against Manchester City in the 3-3 draw at Celtic Park a year ago Tierney has been making his mark in the toughest tournament in the game.
It was almost exactly two years ago he got his big break at Celtic when he stood in for the suspended Emilio Izaguirre at home to Fenerbahce.
Ronny Deila decided to stick by the teenager after that performance which effectively ended the Celtic career of the popular Honduran.
Brendan Rodgers hasn’t been slow to praise the bhoy from Wishaw who has shown his versatility at international level by playing at right back for Scotland.
