Charlie Nicholas Talking Out Of His Backside Again
Charlie Nicholas believes Arsenal have paid over the odds for Kieran Tierney.

Charlie Nicholas believes Arsenal have paid over the odds for Kieran Tierney.

The Celtic star is having a medical in North London ahead of sealing his £25million move to the Premier League giants.But former striker Nicholas – who played for both clubs – insists the Gunners have splashed too much cash for Tierney.

And he has told Celtic supporters to get real, with many disappointed the 22-year-old didn’t stay to help his boyhood favourites over the line in the chase for 9 in a row and potentially the fabled 10.

Nicholas said: "He would be much better than what Arsenal currently have."My honest opinion is it’s quite a high price. Celtic have got very good value at £25m.

"I know Celtic fans say he’s worth £40m because of how much (£50m) Aaron Wan-Bissaka went to Manchester United for.

"He’s played in the Scottish Premiership, he’s a treble Treble winner and an absolute diehard Celtic fan but the time is right for Kieran to move on.

"Fans might sit and say, 'Why does he not stay for 9 in a row'. But there’s no guarantee of Celtic winning that. Neither is 10 in a row.

"OK, you can’t guarantee trophies at Arsenal either but what I can say as an Arsenal fan is they’re signing a very talented left-back who will get better. Arsenal will make him better.

"And the club had to make a statement of intent defensively because they’ve been lacking in that department."
