Robertson and Tierney can play together for Scotland – Clarke
Indeed, he pointed to Tierney’s versatility as being a valuable asset in this regard.
“They’ve played together before,” he explained. “Gordon Strachan used Kieran as a right-back which was one way to fit them in. Kieran can play left centre-back, he can play left of a back three or pushed on as a wing-back.
“He played all those positions for Arsenal towards the end of last season and did very, very well. I think he made a few people in England sit up and take notice of his talent but I don’t think that would be a big surprise to anybody who watched Kieran develop over the years at Celtic.”
“He’s improving, he’s strong, he doesn’t mind the physical side of the game. His hold-up play is decent and the way he plays will help us; we have a lot of good attacking midfield players and it’s important you have a striker who can hold the ball up and bring these players into play. I think Lyndon can do that.
“He’s confident in his ability and feels he can come into the squad and challenge for a starting spot. That’s great because it’s an area of the pitch where we need a little more strength in depth.
“I have to mention Oli McBurnie here because Oli maybe hasn’t quite caught fire on the international stage, but he had a terrific season for Sheffield United last year in the English Premier League.
