KIERAN TIERNEY ignored reports there was a scout from newly-crowned Europa Cup winners Atletico Madrid in the Hampden stand yesterday.
The in-demand Celtic left-back shrugged aside the speculation to enjoy the 2-0 Scottish Cup Final success over Motherwell.
Tierney, who was a stand-out performer again for Brendan Rodgers’ side, said: “You can’t imagine how happy I am. It’s crazy.
“You can see the bond with the fans and us. It’s special, something that’s very close to me. I love it.
“I don’t have a decision to make about leaving. I’ve signed here for six years.
“It’s football, you never know what can happen, there are no guarantees, but I’m really happy here and I think you can see that.”
The 20-year-old had to be helped off in the first-half of last season’s Final with a facial injury following being hit by a swinging arm from Aberdeen striker Jayden Stockley which almost knocked him out.
He added: “I can remember the Final this time. Last year was obviously different for its own reasons, but the outcome was the same.
“We won the Cup and that’s all that matters.”
