Ever since Arsenal signed Kieran Tierney from Celtic back in 2019, the comparisons between him and his compatriot at Liverpool Andy Robertson have been a common theme.
Both players are among the best left-backs in the Premier League, if not the world, but everything in life is a competition, and people just won’t stop until they find a winner.
For Gooners, Tierney will always be superior to Robertson and it will be the other way around for Liverpool fans. So, how do we determine who’s better? Let’s just ask the Scotland supporters.
The Scots faced Austria in a World Cup qualifier last night and managed to come from behind to secure a 2-2 draw. Both Tierney and Robertson started the game, and the difference in quality, confidence and ability was overly evident.
Tierney was forced to play as a left centre-half in a back three but the Arsenal man was given the license to bomb forward and help Robertson in the attacking third.
It is safe to say, the future Gunners skipper outdid his Liverpool counterpart with a truly excellent display for his country at Hampden Park last night.
Scotland fans were thoroughly impressed by Tierney’s quality.
Some of them have even urged their manager – Steve Clarke – to drop the Liverpool man and play the Gunners star in his natural left-back position in the coming games.
