There’s renewed hope that Arsenal and Scotland star Kieran Tierney could be fit before the end of the season in a boost to Scotland’s Euro 2020 hopes (Metro).

The left-back has been outstanding on the domestic scene for Arsenal this season and has turned into one of Steve Clarke’s best players internationally. There was huge concern after a knee injury suffered by the defender against Liverpool a few weeks ago.

While initially it was forecast that Tierney could miss up to six weeks of football, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta confirmed ‘Kieran is out, probably for the season’ last week. But a new report has provided a more positive outlook.

It claims that while he could still be out for the season – Tierney needing to be fit by June 1st in order to make Scotland’s Euro 2020 squad submission deadline – he could return for the final few matches of the domestic season at Arsenal.

He is expected to return to training in around three weeks time, which would see him available for the final few Arsenal league matches and Europa League final, should the Gunners progress past Villarreal in the semi-finals. Scotland start their Euro 2020 campaign on June 14th against Czech Republic.
