Tottenham watched Kieran Tierney in Celtic’s 2-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday night, despite the fact the defender signed a new six-year contract earlier this week.
That’s according to reliable journalist Mark Ogden, who claims Spurs, Manchester United and Arsenal all sent scouts to check on the Celtic left-back.

Tierney put pen to paper on a six-year deal with the Scottish champions on Monday despite rumoured interest from a host of Premier League clubs.
His manager, Brendan Rodgers, has labelled the 20-year-old one of Britain’s best full-backs.
A new contract doesn’t mean there won’t be continued interest in the player. And with Danny Rose’s future at Tottenham still uncertain, perhaps Spurs will consider a move for Tierney in the future.
