Arsenal’s Kieran Tierney warms up in just a t-shirt and shorts as snow pours ahead of West Brom clash January 2, 2021 – Posted in: Soccer
Kieran Tierney is certainly one of a kind.
The Arsenal full-back, dubbed the ‘Scottish Psycho’ by talkSPORT’s Tony Cascarino, has become a firm fans favourite at the Emirates.
He had already got in their good books ahead of Saturday’s trip to West Brom – thanks to his choice of pre-match attire.
There were near arctic conditions in the Midlands as snow pelted down on the Hawthorns ahead of kick-off.
Both sets of players were wrapped up warm as they warmed up prior to the game – with the exception of one player.
Former Celtic full-back Tierney donned just a T-shirt and shorts, and to make matters even hilarious Tierney warmed up with his socks rolled down!
Tierney then made further headlines on the field as his brilliant right-footed drive set the Gunners on their way after 23 minutes.
Mikel Arteta’s side doubled their lead after Bukayo Saka finished off a sensational team move, echoing shades of their 2003/04 Invincibles’ side during an impressive first-half display.
Gunners legend Martin Keown was covering the game for BT Sport and said on Tierney: “He warmed up in a t-shirt and scored a wonderful goal in the snow.
“He’s in a hurry to make his mark at Arsenal Football Club and boy he’s done it tonight.”
Alexandre Lacazette netted twice after the break as Sam Allardyce’s hapless Baggies fell on the wrong end of another thumping, while Arsenal resurgence continues with a third straight victory.
