Kieran Tierney sent former Celtic teammate Emilio Izaguirre a signed Arsenal jersey, dubbing the Honduran his "hero".

Tierney has been credited as the player who ousted left-back Izaguirre from his starting position at Parkhead but the latter seemingly never took it to heart and the pair remained pals while they played together.

The Scotland cap has even revealed in the past how helpful Izaguirre was during his spell in the Celtic ranks.

And now Izaguirre - who plays for Motagua in his home country - thanked KT for sending him a handful of Gunners shirts, including one signed by the £25million defender.

Izzy took to social media to share a photo of the merch and say: "Kieran Tierney, thank you very much my brother, you are the best, God bless you". And his mate responded in kind, adding: "My hero @emilio_izaguirre always will be thank you and god bless".

Tierney and Izaguirre played together at Parkhead in the first-team for two years.
