Tottenham reportedly lead the race to sign Kieran Tierney

Tottenham reportedly lead the race to sign Kieran Tierney

And that clearly caught on with the German's Twitter acount as they joined in on the trend prior to last night's match.

But Tottenham have stepped up their monitoring of the player, with the London club watching Tierney during last month's Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich in Germany before dispatching chief scout Steve Hitchen to watch him in action in the return fixture at Celtic Park on Tuesday.

Bayern, who made five changes for the match in Glasgow, faced a tough challenge against Celtic and only a Halloween horror show in the Hoops defence allowed them to take a 22nd-minute lead through Kingsley Coman.

Brendan Rodgers has declared himself proud of his Celtic side following Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Striker Dembele has been heavily linked with a mega-money switch back to the Premier League after joining Celtic in June 2016. "This game is just about small details and today we concede two easy goals and that's cost us the game".

The 20-year-old signed a new six-year contract at Celtic on Monday, locking him into Brendan Rodgers' plans for the foreseeable future.

"In general, they've played against two teams in Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich who are in the top six teams in the world, so I don't think they should beat themselves up".

"He's come through the Celtic Academy and gone on to play 250 times for Celtic which is an incredible achievement".

Stuart Armsrtong believes a win can open up the possibility of qualification for the last 16.

"Yes, it's down to a lot of that", he continued, when asked if the team's success has helped his development. While these three players are able to do a job there, none are of the requisite standard to be long-term left-backs with United.

"Our aim at the start of the season was to be in European football after Christmas", he said.

The Belgium international said: "We want to do better than we did away".

"We showed that we have the desire and the quality as well to be in this competition".
