It brought the fear for many fans, worried by a day of rumours about Kieran Tierney, suddenly and completely out of character a ‘Celtic Football Club statement’ appeared online just past midnight.
The dark art of burying bad news is well known by internet savvy fans, last night most football contracts carried new status as June turned into July.
For over a week there has been constant stories of ‘Arsenal set to launch new Tierney bid’ sending supporters into a panic, and as we all know Napoli are widely reported to be ‘keeping tabs’.
Fortunately the statement was a glitch, something had gone wrong with the club communications with the David Turnbull statement from June 27 re-released.
With that panic over fans will continue to trawl for news, every snippet will be examined, particularly the prospects of a left-back being bought.
Getting a back-up in for Tierney was a transfer priority for most fans, after a week of speculation surrounding his future the arrival of anyone costing of more than £1m will be looked on as a replacement, not a back-up.
Meanwhile between Wishaw and Lennoxtown. KT continues to go about his business, recovering from his double hernia operation and striving to get back on the park where he can help Celtic back into the group phase of the Champions League.
