Kieran Tierney STARTS for Arsenal this afternoon as they square-off with Vitoria Guimares in the Europa League - 24 hours after the Gunners requested he be omitted from the Scotland squad.

Tartan Army boss Steve Clarke respected the club's request over "ongoing issues" and didn't include the £25million man in his set-up for Cyprus and Kazakhstan games.

We told how the ex-Celtic star boarded the plane to Portugal to join his teammates.

But now the club have confirmed he will play from kick-off against Vitoria despite apparently nursing an injury.

Scotland fans were outraged at the prospect of their player being left out of the 25-man squad at the request of Arsenal for the second time running.

And some called for Clarke to ignore their pleas should they ask again.
