Kieran Tierney made a cheeky injury joke and left Arsenal fans in stitches.
Arsenal fans were in stitches after Kieran Tierney joked about his hip injury coming back.
Tierney moved to the Gunners from Celtic in the summer for £25million but wasn’t fully fit as he hurt his hip before leaving the Scottish champions.
The Scotland international didn’t play for the north London club until Tuesday’s Carabao Cup match that saw Unai Emery’s side thrashing Nottingham Forest 5-0 at the Emirates.
The left-back started in defence and was substituted after 77 minutes by Hector Bellerin who also returned to action from an ACL knee injury.
Both Tierney and Bellerin regained full fitness simultaneously and convinced Emery they are ready when they played for the under-23s against Wolves in a Premier League 2 Division 1 match on Friday.
The defenders were filmed during a post-match workout session at the New Bucks Head stadium where the Scot tried a difficult exercise while working on his core strength.
The 22-year-old fell to the ground and then lied on his back while trainers held his legs up in the air.
It was at that moment where Tierney joked that his injury had returned.
He said: “Oh no, my hip’s gone.”
Bellerin and rest of the coaching staff started laughing whereas fans watching the footage from the club’s official YouTube page were also left in stitches.
One fan posted: “Tierney is class.”
Another wrote: “The banter from KT is lit.”
A third added: “KT’s a baller.”
And another supporter said: “Smash it, KT.”
This is not the first time Tierney cracks jokes with the Arsenal faithful as a video recently emerged of him dressed in a funny attire resembling a superhero in the dressing room.
Emile Smith Rowe held the camera and was heard laughing uncontrollably while fans joined in on the fan on Twitter and tried to find a name for his vigilante character.
