Bolton signing Tierney holds no Norwich grudge

Bolton Wanderers signing Marc Tierney accepts his time at Norwich City was up.

The left-back was one of ten players released at the end of the previous campaign but the 27-year-old feels he has landed on his feet with the ambitious Trotters.

"I wanted to work with someone who was hungry and who could get me going like Paul Lambert did so, when I spoke to Dougie Freedman I thought he was going to do exactly that," he said.

"Chris Hughton is a fine fellow, but football-wise we didn't see eye to eye. That's absolutely fine, and it has paid off for me because a club the stature of Bolton came in and I've got a manager who will really get me going.

"There were other offers and I was flattered by the interest from some very good clubs. However, once I had spoken to Dougie I told my agent that was my number one target.

"The club sold itself and to have an enthusiastic manager who will leave no stone unturned to get where he wants is what I need. Normally, I'm like everyone else, I don't like the thought of starting pre-season. But this year I can't wait."
