Tierney was already on a long term deal but the new deal will put him on nodding terms with the leading earners at the club.
Brendan Rodgers has been delighted by the way that the player has developed with his attitude spot on among the current generation of often pampered footballers.
Since making his debut under Ronny Deila the bhoy from Wishaw has made close to 100 appearances with the new deal likely to open up a few hundred more top team appearances.
At the age of 20 he has already overcome two serious injuries with no lasting effect and is being tipped as a future Celtic captain and manager among other accolades!
