Man Utd  to strengthen their left back position

Obviously, Luke Shaw has been the only option for the Red Devils in the left-back position, having played more than 30 matches this season.

Despite having a decent season, the 23-year-old might not be enough for the Red Devils.

Now, Ole Gunnar Solsjkjaer cites that Tierney could resolve the defensive woes at Old Trafford.

Tierney- a complete full-back for the Hoops

Ever since he made his debut with the main team in 2014, the 21-year-old has become a staple for the Celts.

Tierney has played 167 games for the Hoops and earned 12 international caps, an impressive record for a player of his age.

He has been pivotal for the Bhoys’ terrific run in the Premiership this season, providing four assists in 20 appearances.

However, Tierney dealt with an injury last month, which made him miss the Euro Qualifiers.

Tierney-less Celtic

Former Hoops midfielder, Stylian Petrov, added that the Red Devils would go all out for  Tierney and insisted that the Scotsman should seek a  move to the Premier League.

It will be difficult for Neil Lennon to foresee a future, without his first-choice left-back, Tierney.

Emilio Izaguirre is the only option on the left, now in the twilight of his career.
