SCOTLAND have been handed a major boost as Kieran Tierney could return to action in time for Euro 2020.
The former Celtic star was forced off with a knee injury during Arsenal’s defeat to Liverpool at the weekend.
And the Gunners have now confirmed on their website that the left-back suffered ligament damage to his left knee.
However, they also revealed that Tierney will not require surgery and it’s hoped he can return to full training within the next four to six weeks.
While the tournament opener against the Czech Republic will take place at Hampden on June 14.
Former Celtic defender Tierney was one of Scotland’s top performers in the recent World Cup qualifying clashes with Austria, Israel and the Faroe Islands.
He racked up three assists in the game against the Faroes alone as the national side ran out 4-0 winners.
