There is a lot of talk about Kieran Tierney going to the very top level – but for me the boy is there already.

So far as the manner of his performances go, there is no question that he is a phenomenal talent. He has captained Celtic at just 20 which shows a maturity about his character as well as a natural ability and in that left-back there are few who can live with him.

Spurs are the latest to be keeping close tabs on Tierney and while there is an expectancy that he will eventually move on to a bigger league but right now the boy could take his pick of clubs – and I mean that.

Evening Times: Kieran Tierney in action against Aberdeen this week

There isn’t a Premiership team in England who wouldn’t take him.

But for me, he is happy where he is and there is genuinally nothing about him which suggests his eye on a move. He is developing and getting better all the time and his performance against Aberdeen the other night was exceptional.

You can apply that message to the team in its entirety. There were half a dozen that could easily have taken the man of the match award but while Tierney stands out, so too did Moussa Dembele.

I have always maintained that he is a class apart and I mean no disrespect to Leigh Griffiths when I say that. Griffiths has upped his game and matured a huge amount over the last ten months or so, but Dembele is another quite extraordinary talent.

Both he and Tierney will be pivotal to Celtic next week when the club host Bayern Munich at Celtic Park on Tuesday night.

Brendan Rodgers’ side will need to negotiate their way past Kilmarnock on Saturday before they think of that one, but these two will be at the fore in a game that I think will bear little resemblance to the meeting over in Munich earlier this month.

I fully expect that it will be a different display from Celtic.

Dembele has a power about him that no other striker in the country has. It was evident in the manner in which he set up that first goal against Aberdeen and he has the physicality not just to hold defenders off but to pull them apart.

He is edging back to the kind of form that we saw from him last season and if this is him where he still has to get fitter and sharper then God help the rest of Scottish football.

He looks as though he is in the mood and he will be one of the key men on Tuesday night.

I suspect that the middle of the park will be Scott Brown, Stuart Armstrong and one of either Tom Rogic or Callum McGregor. It is a toss up which one will start and which one will come on but what you do have to say is that Celtic are mentally in a great place right now.

They have not stood still this season. They have accepted the plaudits from last term but have shown the dame ruthlessness, the same hunger, the same drive – and it is evident in the way in which they are playing.

Granted, they will be disappointed with the way they played against PSG and Bayern in the Champions League but they have still improved on last term because I think we all expect that they will take the Europa League place after Christmas.

But what they will want is a better performance against a team who will be expected to challenge to actually win the competition.

I always thought that it would have been to Celtic’s advantage had they played the Bundesliga team at Celtic Park straight after the Anderlecht game but it wasn’t to be.

Who knows how the game will play out but what they will want to do is put in a much better performance and what follows from there you just don’t know.

There will be a bit of determination on their part to rectify that display in Munich, particularly the opening half, and I think we will see a different Celtic.

Certainly, though, they could be going into that game on the back of a weekend in which they make history and what you have to say is that at whatever level you play football, the record of unbeaten games is quite remarkable.

I keep hearing that Brendan Rodgers will get fed up winning and will fancy a move back south. Well, the manner in which his teams are playing would appear to be at direct odds to that.

His teams are constantly improving, are still hungry and are still striving to get better – all of that comes from a motivated, eager manager. And while the players deserve credit for their part in the record, it wouldn’t have happened without Rodgers at the helm.

Everything about him, about the way he plays, about the way he sets his team up suggests he is in it for the long haul. Perhaps there is no coincidence the Hoops support sing about Brendan Rodgers being here for ten-in-a-row.
