KIERAN TIERNEY has been named Arsenal's player of the month for June, as voted for by the fans.

The former Celtic full-back received 40 per cent of the votes cast, with Bukayo Saka in second place and Granit Xhaka in third.

The Scotland international has been in fine form throughout June, playing all four of Arsenal's games and impressing with his energy and commitment at left back or left wing back.

Tierney was named man of the match in Arsenal's Emirates FA Cup quarter-final victory against Sheffield United, and won a legion of the Gunners support for turning up to the game carrying a Tesco bag instead of a wash bag.

We told this morning how Arsenal gaffer Mikel Arteta praised Tierney and told how he would not be leaving the club despite transfer rumours linking him with a move to Leicester City.

He said: “He’s not going anywhere.

“I really like him.

“I’m very impressed him. Everybody loves him at the club and he earns that every single day with the way he treats people, the way he works and the energy he brings to the place.

“And then with his performances, I am delighted. He has adapted really well, he is a player that gives you everything in every session and every game. And the quality he has added as well.

“He’s still so young, he has things to improve obviously but he’s been a great addition to the team.”
