Kieran Tierney wants to give Celtic fans a clean sweep in the Old Firm derby
The Hoops face their Glasgow rivals this Sunday at Celtic Park in the fourth derby showdown of the season, having won the previous three clashes.
Celtic and Rangers will meet a total of six times this season after they were drawn against each other in next month’s Scottish Cup semi-finals.
Celtic last completed a green and whitewash in season 2003/04 when they won all five derbies that season.
When asked about the importance to the supporters of beating their fiercest rivals in every Old Firm clash this season, Tierney replied: “That clean sweep means everything to the supporters and what we’re doing this year is all for the supporters.
“They have backed us all the way and we just try to give back to them as much as we can.”
Celtic have already beaten Rangers three times this season
Celtic are unbeaten in domestic competition this season and have only dropped two-points in the entire campaign.
Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn claimed they can be the ones that wreck the Hoops’ Invincibles bid. But Tierney insists they don’t want to lose that tag but insists they can handle the pressure of being favourites going into the derby clash.
He said: “We don’t want to lose our unbeaten tag at all. It doesn’t matter who it is, we just don’t want to lose.
“We are focusing on the next game always and the next training session.
“What we are going to work on that day is what we focus on.
“Every little thing we work on each day builds us up and makes us better prepared for every game.
