Kieran Tierney reckons working with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta can benefit him in the Scotland squad.

The former Celtic left-back has not worked with the international set-up in a number of months following some difficult injury setbacks including a hip problem as well as a thigh issue. Tierney then dislocated his shoulder playing for the Gunners and was forced out of several squads put together by Steve Clarke.

Fast-forward to present day and KT is an FA Cup winner at Arsenal. And he puts his success down to the winning mentality manager and former Rangers midfielder Arteta has brought to the Emirates. The 23-year-old also believes he can take the mindset with him into his Scotland camp and help his national teammates.

"Winning mentality is a lot in football. And the manager wanted to bring that to Arsenal," he told Sky Sports. "They went through a spell where the manager wasn’t happy, the fans weren’t happy and the players weren’t happy because they weren’t achieving what they wanted to achieve.

“I think him coming in and knowing what the club was about, and knowing that the club needs success, it needs trophies, it needs to be high up in the league as well is brilliant.

"And, for me, learning there and hopefully bringing a bit of that to here is hopefully going to benefit everyone."
