KIERAN TIERNEY is “good to go” for next weekend’s Scotland versus England game. The Celtic full-back had been a doubt after sustaining a serious mouth injury in last weekend’s Scottish Cup final, with initial fears that he would require an operation that may have kept him out of the Hampden World Cup qualifier on June 10. But Celtic coach John Kennedy now expects the 19 year-old to be available for selection.

“Kieran’s in Spain so there can’t be much wrong with him!” he said. “He’s over there enjoying a short break before he meets up with Scotland. He obviously picked up an injury in his mouth or jaw area but, by all accounts, he’s probably going to be good to go for the England game. As long as the medical team give him the go-ahead, ask him to put on a gum shield of whatever he’ll be good to play. He’ll probably go and play with a muzzle on if you ask him. The type of character Kieran is he won’t miss anything, so if he gets the green light to go he’ll be there.”
