Pat Nevin is confident Celtic defender Kieran Tierney will prove a big hit in the Premier League.

The Scotland international has been touted as a potential target for Manchester United over the past few months.

Tierney has scored three times in 32 appearances in the Scottish Premier League in the current campaign.

The 20-year-old has also got vital Champions League football under his belt to make him a natural target for the top Premier League teams.

The Celtic starlet has made nine appearances in the Scotland national team since making his debut as an 18-year-old.

Former Chelsea FC star Nevin is backing Tierney to be a success if Celtic decide to sell their prized asset.

“I hope he stays a wee while longer,” Nevin told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“He would comfortably walk into any top Premier League team and be fine. He is that good.”

England international Luke Shaw has struggled to earn a regular starting spot in the Manchester United team under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils have used 32-year-old England international Ashley Young at left-back throughout the current campaign.
