Tierney

's injury was so bad that the season was over for him, but his absence from the field was only one month, and he accompanied the gunners in the final five games of the season. The left-back is now ready to lead Scotland at Euro 2020.

Tierney told 

The Sun

:

"I heard the pop from my knee and it immediately went through my mind 'Is this bad? Is this my season done

?'

"I was worried about it being long term. Arsenal were on course for a European final and I didn't want to miss the ties we had coming up or the end to the season. Then there was Scotland and the Euros. There was everything to play for."

Tierney has called up in Scotland's 26-man squad for the Euros 2020.

"

The injury happened at a time I was feeling great. I'd just got back from the Scotland camp where I'd done well,

" Tierney said.

"I had to wait three or four days before I got the news from the Arsenal physio Jordan Reece it was a grade two ligament problem and I'd be six weeks out. He told me: 'You'll be fine for the Euros. You don't need to worry about that'.

"It was still disappointing to be out. but it was also relief it wasn't for far longer.

"Thankfully, surgery wasn’t needed. I actually got back playing within four and a half weeks which was crazy, and now I’m feeling great again and ready for the Euros."
