MASTER of understatement Kieran Tierney rated his man-of-the match performance against the Faroe Islands for Scotland as ‘no bad’.

The Arsenal man put on an all-action display as he rampaged forward from the back three and topped of an eye-catching showing with three assists in the 4-0 win.

But the former Celtic full-back was humble when asked to assess his contribution to the cause as the Scots finished their opening three World Cup qualifying matches unbeaten.

“No bad,” he said. “I just tried by best as always.

“I had a bit more time to go forward tonight, so I enjoyed it. Everybody knows I like being high and wide, putting crosses in. That’s my game and tonight I did a bit of that.

“It’s a good result. I think we needed it that tonight, a win and a clean sheet. You can’t ask for much more.

“It’s the perfect way to end the camp. It’s been a tough camp and a successful one.”

Tierney was listed on the teamsheet as playing on the left-hand side of a back three, but along with Andy Robertson, he dominated the left flank and spent the vast majority of the night in attacking areas.

Steve Clarke is just the latest Scotland manager to try to find the best formula to accommodate the nation’s two star men, and Tierney was encouraged by what they managed to produce when paired in tandem on the left-hand side.

“It was good tonight,” he said. “I think the manager probably wanted me to sit a bit more but I couldn’t help myself at times.”

The Scots now sit in second place in Group F after Denmark beat Austria 4-0 in Vienna.

“It’s the perfect end to the camp,” Tierney said. “The boys are happy and we’ve got a bit more confidence about us now.”
