However, that figure has not put off the flock of admirers that will head to Glasgow’s East End for the Champions League showdown.

Representatives from Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal will all be among the sides watching on, according to the Daily Record

Left-back Tierney has just recently penned a new six-year deal with Brendan Rodgers’ side, maximising any potential transfer fee.


But Tottenham have already sent one of their scouts to watch him in action in Munich 13 days ago and he will also be back running the rule over the 20-year-old.

Speaking to Celtic TV after confirming his new deal, Tierney said: “I still can’t believe it. It’s amazing.

“It’s a lot to take in right now, but I’m delighted.

“The players I’m playing with and the manager I’m under all helps. I can’t do this on my own.

“It’s a team effort and I’ve a lot to thank them for, especially the captain [Scott Brown].

“The manager has trusted me since day one. I was very young when he came in and I’d only played one season in the first team.

“There’s always a doubt he might bring in someone more experienced, but he’s trusted me and I’ve a lot to thank him for.

“To captain Celtic is probably the greatest honour I’ve ever had.

“To walk out and give the team talk in the Huddle is unbelievable. For the gaffer to have trust in someone so young is fantastic for me.”

Meanwhile, Dembele has just as many admirers following his breakthrough campaign north of the border last season.

The ex-Fulham youngster, who scored 32 goals in 49 matches, has found the net five times again so far this time out.

The Frenchman is set to lead the Hoops’ attack against the Bundesliga outfit and his reputation was enhanced again when he was called up to the France squad yesterday.
