A Catholic Church in Motherwell, St Brendan’s Church, has congratulated and sent it’s best wishes to Kieran Tierney who has left Celtic for Arsenal for a fee of £25m.

Tierney went to St Brendan’s Primary, Our Lady’s High in Motherwell, then St Ninian’s High in Kirkintilloch, attended Mass at the parish.

St Brendan’s has said that it will ‘pray at Mass on Sunday that Kieran will continue to use his talent to the fullest and to be a good role model for young people who are very much at the centre of parish life’.

Parish priest, Fr Owen James Ness said: “We pray for Kieran Tierney of this parish that he will flourish through his God-given exceptional skill as a footballer and that he will keep free of injury to be able to use his talent to the fullest.

“It’s widely know that young people are open to many very powerful influences.

“Peer pressure has a big influence, so those who give time to parish activities either in ministry or by the ministry of their presence at church, especially by participation in Mass, often have to resist peer pressure in pursuing what is for them a wonderfully powerful experience.

“I remind them that by doing so they have the potential to influence others in their own age group to come to experience the goodness which the help to create taking part in parish life.”
