KIERAN TIERNEY thumped in Celtic’s 100th goal of the campaign with the second in the 2-0 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie yesterday.

But the Hoops left-back admitted he doesn’t give a jot who gets on the scoresheet for the champions.

Tierney said: “A goal is a goal for me. As long as the team wins I don’t care who scores.

“For me, it is brilliant to get another goal. I managed to celebrate in front of the Celtic fans which meant a lot to me.

”It was a great counter and Moussa was on the ball. He had an option to his right and I gave him one to the left.

“He played a great through ball to me and I have hit it that hard it has gone in.

“We are always positive, that’s the way it is at Celtic. You are always going to have games and we dealt with it great on this occasion.

“If it sends out a message then it does, but we don’t concentrate on that. We concentrate on ourselves.

“That was the result and performance we wanted.”
