Kieran Tierney reportedly withdraws from the Scotland squad ahead of internationals this month as Arsenal look to ease his return from injury.

Kieran Tierney has been reportedly withdrawn from the Scotland squad ahead of internationals this month as Arsenal look to ease his return from injury.

The 21-year-old, who came through the ranks at Celtic, joined Arsenal on deadline day for a fee of £25m.

However, Arsenal fans are yet to see Tierney in action as the Scot continues to recover from a double hernia operation received over the summer.

According to The Sun, following discussions with Arsenal's medical team, a decision has been reached to withdraw Tierney from internationals against Russia and San Marino.

Tierney featured in a Premier League 2 fixture for Arsenal against Wolverhampton Wanderers last month, spending 60 minutes on the pitch.

His prospective full-back partner, Hector Bellerin, is also closing in on a return to action after being sidelined since January due to a knee ligament injury.
