Hartson confident Tierney can become future Arsenal captain

Former Arsenal striker John Hartson has tipped Kieran Tierney as a future captain of the club.

The Scotland left-back, signed from was exceptional after the Premier League restart.

"He was outstanding at Celtic for many a year, played lot of European games,' Hartson told talkSPORT.

"Champions League games, picked up trebles and trophies. He's clearly a winner.

"I think the Arsenal fans and a lot of people that are watching the English Premier League needed a little bit of time to realise how good this kid is.

"He's an outstanding player, he gets forward, he's got an FA Cup winner's medal under his belt, a Community Shield medal.

"Initially he was injured and was in and out a little bit with his groin, he couldn't quite find his best form.

"But now that he's settled he's a future Arsenal captain for me, 100 per cent."
