Celtic’s sheer dominance has (almost) assured them of another Scottish Premiership title this season and a major chunk of credit goes to the refreshing positive attitude Brendan Rodger’s brought along with him, especially towards the younger players.
The former Liverpool boss has brought up and nurtured several young players at Celtic, proof of which can be seen in the big money offer that has reportedly been made for 19 year old star Kieran Tierney by Premier League giants Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho had reportedly been looking for a way to curb the defensive woes since he took command at Old Trafford and it was the young Scottish full back who grabbed his scout’s attention apparently.
Owing to his massive popularity, the local boy has made quite some reputation amongst the faithful Hoops, many of whom have ridiculed the United’s £10 million bid!
Check out the best reactions of Celtic fans on United’s offer-
Record saying United will 'test Celtic's resolve' with a £10m bid for Tierney. That wouldn't even buy his right foot.

Pure bollocks that Man Utd £10 million story re: Tierney. 1) he's one of us; and 2) why would they only buy his right toe?

Imagine Man Utd thinking £10m is a fair valuation of Kieran Tierney. How much did they buy Luke Shaw for again? 😂🙈

Man Utd paid £30m for Luke Shaw, Kieran Tierney is not only better than him but the best LB in the UK, Celtic won't entertain less than £20m
