Arsenal star Kieran Tierney couldn’t help himself from breaking manager’s orders

Arsenal star Kieran Tierney admitted he couldn’t help himself from breaking Steve Clarke’s orders on Wednesday night.

Tierney laid on three assists as Scotland beat Faroe Islands 4-0 in their World Cup qualifying clash.

It moved Scotland up to second in Group F with Tierney impressing as he played on the left of a back-three.

Liverpool’s Andy Robertson was ahead of Tierney, playing left-midfield, though it was the Gunners star that ran the risk of upsetting Clarke with his forays forward.

"I was not bad. I just tried my best as always,” Tierney said. "I had a bit more time to go forward tonight and I enjoyed it.

"Everybody knows I like being high and wide putting crosses in. That's my game. Tonight I did a lot of that. It was good tonight (with Andy Robertson).

"I think the manager wanted me to sit a bit more but I couldn't help myself at times!

"It's the perfect end to the camp. The boys will be happy with that as there was a bit more confidence about us as well. It was a good way to end it."

Clarke himself was glad to get three points on the board following draws in Scotland’s first two World Cup qualifiers.

"We picked a team that was positive and would get at them," said Clarke.

"We scored within the first eight minutes. We then had to be patient waiting for the second goal and we were.

"They still had one or two chances so we have to better defensively. But I'm pleased. First camp, five points, second in the group, let's look forward to September now – the next games in the World Cup.
