Rangers legend Kris Boyd believes Kieran Tierney is operating at a level that suggests he is too good for Arsenal in their current place in the football pyramid, and is confident the all-action left-back is capable of playing for one of Europe’s biggest teams.

The former Celtic star’s Arsenal career took a while to get going following his £25million move from his boyhood club in the summer of 2019.

Tierney joined the Gunners while he was still recovering from a hernia operation and after cementing his place in the team a dislocated shoulder meant he had to bide his time before establishing his place in Mikel Arteta’s side.

While Arsenal’s inconsistency has undermined their attempts to finish in the Premier League’s top four this season, Tierney has enhanced his reputation with a series of outstanding displays.

The 23-year-old impressed on international duty for Scotland in midweek, registering a hat-trick of assists in a 4-0 win over Faroe Islands, and while he appears settled in north London, recently describing Arteta has a football genius, Boyd believes his compatriot can do better than the Gunners.

‘I just think his energy, his drive, his determination and his leadership skills as well,’ Boyd told Sky Sports when asked for his assessment of his compatriot’s best qualities.

‘For or all Arsenal are a big club I think Kieran Tierney’s got another move in him. I think he’s got another move to one of Europe’s biggest.

‘I think everything he does his work rate and determination, a lot of people have got that, but he’s also go the quality when he gets into those areas.

‘He’s a fantastic player. The whole Celtic thing, he couldn’t turn it down, it was an opportunity to go to a huge club in Arsenal. Yes, he was injured at the start and it’s taken him a little while to get going.

‘But once he’s got himself in the team he’s performed at a level where I don’t think there’s many left-sided players in the English Premier League that perform like that and for that reason I think he can go again. I really do think he can go again to one of the bigger ones.’
