Arsenal’s new Left Back Kieran Tierney may be injured and a long way from making his debut but he is quickly winning the hearts of most Arsenal fans. The Scottish International is currently undergoing rehab on a groin injury at Arsenal’s training base.
On Thursday, the former Celtic treble-winning player and fan favorite changed his profile picture on Twitter and it is not exactly the kind of photo that most expected. He is pictured rather surprised as one of the club’s medical staff shows him a photo on a tablet.

Down to earth…
Kieran Tierney seems like one of the most down to earth footballers on the planet. He has no interest in causing controversy, grooming himself or splashing his cash. He’s seemingly just a true football fan living his dream. It’s so refreshing. I can’t wait to see him in action.

Kieran Tierney hasn’t even played a minute for Arsenal yet and he’s already quoted Gerry Cinnamon in his first Arsenal related tweet, changed his AVI to the new meme photo of him and rattled Celtic fans hard. We’re going to have so much fun with this guy.

Tierney joined Arsenal on the last day of the summer transfer window for a record Scottish fee of 25 Million pounds. He will however not play for the club until at least October when he is due to resume full training with the squad.
He is a no-nonsense modern full-back and will be great value for Unai Emery who very much likes attacking full-backs.
