Kieran Tierney admitted he was ‘disappointed and frustrated’ at being placed in self-isolation as he faces missing Arsenal’s clash with Manchester City.

Tierney’s Scotland team-mate Stuart Armstrong, the Southampton ace, tested positive for coronavirus on international duty and was put into self-isolation for 10 dyas from October 6, the date he was tested.

While every other player tested negative for Covid-19, Tierney and Celtic’s Ryan Christie were said to have come in close contact with Armstrong, meaning they will also self-isolate for 14 days as of yesterday.

Tierney is now set to miss the Premier League trip to face Man City and he admitted he was ‘frustrated’ by the situation.

‘I’m so disappointed and frustrated to be in this situation,’ said Tierney.

‘I have adhered to all regulations and made sure I was socially distancing from my team mates in the hotel. I’ve also tested negative.
