Kieran Tierney is wanted by Sunderland
The left-back was outstanding as Brendan Rodgers’ side swept aside Hearts to smash the 50-year-old club record of 26 domestic games unbeaten held previously by the Lisbon Lions.
The Black Cats’ need is more urgent as they are on the verge of selling left-back Patrick van Aanholt to Palace for £14m.

Chelsea want to sign Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon
Manager Davie Moyes will get a large chunk of that cash to spend, and Tierney’s name is high on his list.
Celtic are likely to refuse all January bids for the 19-year-old, but his list of admirers is growing and he could be sold in the summer.
Rodgers is also trying to fend off Chelsea’s interest in keeper Craig Gordon.
The 34-year-old is keen to hear what Chelsea have to offer as they look to make him understudy to Thibaut Courtois. Talks between Gordon’s agent and Celtic chiefs today will likely be pivotal.
Rodgers said: “He is a player we want to keep. I have had a few conversations with him and he is clear where we are at.
“I understand the lure of it and I also understand what it would mean for Craig to go there as a No 2 for the next two years and waste away his career in not playing games.”
