Tierney - It's been the toughest year of my life

Kieran Tierney

It's been a difficult first season in north London for Kieran Tierney but Sunday's goal against Watford was the perfect tonic.

Our No 3 had struggled with injury since arriving from Celtic last summer but has since established himself as one of our most consistent performers - and an indispensable piece of our back line.
 
"It's been the toughest year of my life," he said. "I've had the injury and a lot of new challenges but you need challenges, you need to be uncomfortable.
 
"You need to challenge yourself to improve. I worked hard every day and I knew it wasn't going to be easy coming to this massive club full of great players. I knew it was going to be tough coming in and trying to get my place in the team.
 
"I'm just grateful for every opportunity I get to go on the pitch and give my all. I try to repay the manager's faith by working hard and trying to put in good performances. It's all about the hard work.
 
"I didn't know what to do [to celebrate the goal] so I just turned around," Tierney added. "I think it was shock! I'll take it. It was a good ball from Auba as well so it was a good day for me personally."
