Kieran Tierney will undergo surgery for a knee injury and will probably miss the rest of the season, as announced by Arsenal.

Arsenal claim Kieran Tierney did not suffer the issue while he was on international duty, but in a training at Arsenal. There also this possibility that Tierney could miss World Cup qualifier match of Scotland against Ukraine.

The club statement says: “Kieran felt discomfort after a training session on Thursday, March 31. Further assessments and scans have confirmed that Kieran has damaged his left knee.”

“A specialist consultation took place on Tuesday, and as a result of further discussions with Kieran and our medical team, it has been decided that Kieran requires surgery to his knee. This procedure will take place in London in the forthcoming days.”

“Kieran’s rehabilitation programme will start immediately after his surgery, at which stage a clearer understanding will be established on his recovery timescale. However, it is likely that Kieran will now miss the remainder of this season.”
