Tierney savouring festive fixture list after last year's injury misery
Kieran Tierney has no complaints about Celtic's punishing December schedule after sitting it out last year through injury.
The 20-year-old Hoops left-back missed three months of last season between October and January after sustaining a serious ligament injury in training.
Aberdeen are the visitors to Celtic Park today for the top-of-the-table clash, and it will be the seventh of nine games this month for Brendan Rodgers' league leaders.
However, Tierney is happy to be kept busy. The Scotland defender said: "Last Christmas I was out and I was gutted. Seeing the team winning and playing well, you always want to be a part of that. So I don't care how many games there are, it is just good to be involved.
"It has been constant for everyone for 18 months, you don't get a break with the internationals, but we will look forward to three big games first."
