Kieran Tierney has returned to Arsenal's pre-season a week early in order to play against Rangers.

The former Celtic left-back was given a month off by the club following his participation in Euro 2020 with Scotland.

However Tierney was back on the training pitch at Arsenal's Oriam base in Edinburgh ahead of this weekend's friendly clash at Ibrox.

And the 24-year-old could be available for the match after missing his side's 2-1 defeat to Hibs in midweek.

Glasgow Times:

The Premier League giants started with some big names on the pitch at Easter Road including captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Willian and Sead Kolasinac.

Alexander Lacazette and Pepe came off the bench in the second-half and are expected to play in Glasgow on Saturday.

Manager Mikel Arteta, of course, enjoyed a trophy-laden spell as a Rangers player between 2002-04 and revealed his excitement at heading back. "It’s a very good game for me especially because I played there and it is a really special place," he said. "I’m looking forward to that game."
