‘He’s got everything’ – McGinn hails Arsenal new boy Tierney

John McGinn says Arsenal new boy Kieran Tierney has ‘got everything’ to succeed in England following his Scottish record move to the Emirates.

Tierney joined Arsenal from Celtic in a £25m deal on deadline day, and Aston Villa midfielder McGinn believes the club’s supporters should be excited by the 22-year-old’s arrival.

McGinn, who plays alongside Tierney for Scotland, says the highly-rated youngster ‘will run through a brick wall’ for the club and has backed his compatriot to be a major success in the Premier League.

“He’s got everything,” McGinn told talkSPORT.

“Once he gets back fit, he will run through a brick wall for Arsenal.

“Not only that, he can gallop up and down the pitch and get assists, he’s a very good crosser of the ball.

“He’s also a really humble guy who will improve all the time.”

Tierney is currently recovering from a double hernia operation and hip problem as he awaits his Arsenal debut, though he is expected to return to first-team action in the coming weeks.
