The former Celtic and Scotland defender returned from international duty with injury which made him miss Arsenal’s 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace yesterday.

The Gunners are on a quest to make top four this season and the absence of Tierney will come as a big blow for the North London side and also his country Scotland as they have an important world cup playoff tie scheduled for June.

Arsenal released an official statement on their website to confirm Tierney’s injury on Tuesday afternoon.

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

“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.

“Everyone at the club will now be supporting and working hard with Kieran to get him back on the pitch as soon as possible.”
