Scotland international Kieran Tierney has taken to Instagram to inform fans that he’s on the mend after his dislocated shoulder injury whilst playing for Arsenal.

He’s said that an operation on his right shoulder has been successful. He suffered the injury against West Ham earlier this month after finally making his way back from another knock.

Tierney lasted just under 30 minutes against the Hammers before an awkward fall on his arm. The left-back left the field in a makeshift sling before a diagnosis was reached.

Race for the play-offs

It was his first start under interim Gunners boss Freddie Ljungberg. They haven’t been in great form this season, currently finding themselves in tenth and without a manager following Unai Emery’s departure.


For Tierney though, he’ll be eager to get back playing ASAP. As things stand, he will likely be a doubt for Scotland’s crucial play-off matches in March.

Those matches against Israel and then potentially Norway or Serbia could send the nation to their first tournament since 1998. To be missing Tierney, who hasn’t featured for Scotland since March 2018, would be a big blow,

Hopefully now the left-back is on the road to recovery.
