ARSENAL defender Kieran Tierney admits it would be an honour to one day wear the captain's armband at the Emirates.

The 24-year-old joined the London club in a £25million deal in 2019 and has established himself as a fan's favourite after impressing in the Gunners defence.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Tierney was asked about the prospect of one day being named Arsenal captain - something that some fans have called for on social media.

The Scotland internationalist reckons he learned a lot from Scott Brown when the pair were team-mates at Celtic - adding that he would try to replicate the midfielder's leadership if Mikel Arteta ever handed him the armband.

Glasgow Times:

"I feel as if I’ve learned off some great leaders," Tierney replied when asked about the possibility of one day captaining the Premier League side.

"I always go back to Scott Brown, I think he’s the perfect example of a leader.

"He was born to be a leader, what he’s done in his career and how he carried the team for years and years, I learned off him.

Glasgow Times:

"I came here and there are leaders here that I’m learning off as well and at Scotland as well.

"I’ve been lucky enough to captain Celtic and Scotland at a young age, it’s something that, of course, would be an honour to captain your national team or the club you’re playing for.

"I just need to concentrate on giving 100 per cent. You can still be a leader without the armband."
