Tierney again declares Arsenal captaincy ambitions

Kieran Tierney had again declared Arsenal captaincy ambitions.

The 24-year-old defender has declared that should he get the armband, he would follow in the mould of ex-Celtic team-mate Scott Brown.

He told Sky Sports: "I feel as if I've learned off some great leaders.

"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.

"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."
