Kieran Tierney has thanked fans for their support after he was ruled out of action with a dislocated shoulder.

The former Celtic defender was forced off against West Ham early with the problem which had flared up and worsened.

It now looks like the £25million left-back could be out for a significant period of the season.

But he took to social media to tell supporters of his appreciation for their words of encouragement.

He said: "Thank you so much for continued support through everything. Very grateful for it. I don’t take it for granted. God bless x".

KT, 22, has only made ten appearances for Arsenal since his move through injury.

He was initially battling through a hernia problem and then a thigh issue.

Tierney could miss up to three months with his shoulder.
