ARSENAL left-back Kieran Tierney has revealed he is relishing the prospect of competing with Oleksandr Zinchenko for a starting spot.

The 25-year-old knows he is in danger of losing his regular place in the team following the £32million arrival of the Ukraine international.

Having been plagued by numerous injuries since arriving from Celtic in 2019, the Scotland international is aware he is no longer guaranteed a place in Mikel Arteta's team when fit.

Zinchenko started the Gunners' last two pre-season matches, and he was preferred ahead of Tierney for the Premier League season opener against Crystal Palace.

Speaking prior to the trip to Selhurst Park, Tierney was nothing but complimentary towards his new team-mate.

And in a slight dig to Nuno Tavares, who has been shipped off on loan to Marseille, the former Hoops ace has insisted he finally has competition at left-back.

In an interview with Celtic legend Chris Sutton for the Daily Mail, Tierney was asked whether Arteta spoke to him first before making a move for Zinchenko.

To which he said: "No, but I'm not surprised because I've never had that.

"At a club like Arsenal, you need competition.

"For where we want to go, you need at least two players for each position. He is a great signing."

Commenting on whether he embraces the competition, he added: "Genuinely, I love it.

"I love being up against it. I'm coming back from injury.

"I know I'll need to work my way back. But I'm ready."

Tierney has also hailed the signing of Gabriel Jesus, where he stated he is hopeful of winning a trophy as well as qualifying for the Champions League.

Steelers Work out Former SIU Star, Waived Veteran Returns

Getty Steelers LB Ulysees Gilbert prepares to take the field.

The NFL journey for linebacker Ulysees Gilbert III has been a long and winding one. Selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL draft, Gilbert was hampered with injuries in his first two seasons.

Gilbert reverted to Pittsburgh’s reserve/injured list after clearing waivers on August 11. He was enjoying the best camp of his career in a battle for an inside linebacker spot when, according to Steelers Now, he suffered an ankle injury during a tackling drill at practice on August 6.

“You know, I’ll be out a couple of weeks,” Gilbert told Steelers Now of the injury. “It’s not ideal, but it’s just another obstacle to overcome.”

It’s been one obstacle after another for Gilbert. Dealing with back issues on and off since college, Gilbert found himself on injured reserve in the second half of his rookie season with fractured L-5 vertebrae in his lower back. Late in the 2020 season, the Steelers placed Gilbert on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

“I know what God has planned for me,” said Gilbert. “I’m going to fight back, go with this rehab, and come back better than ever. I believe in that.”

Gilbert has recorded just 25 tackles in 28 appearances. Appearing in all 17 games in 2021, Gilbert played primarily on special teams (337 snaps), with only 36 defensive snaps. In Week 1 last season, Gilbert recovered a blocked punt and returned it for a touchdown.

Now that Gilbert is back in Pittsburgh, the Steelers will likely stash him on the practice squad, where he’ll await his next opportunity while his ankle heals.

Steelers Workout Linebacker

The Pittsburgh Steelers brought in Southern Illinois linebacker Bryce Notree on August 12, per the NFL transaction wire.

Notree was a defensive star for the Salukis playing in 46 games and recording 246 tackles, 6.5 sacks and four interceptions. He started all 13 games in his senior season, recording 4.0 sacks, 7.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions, seven quarterback hurries and led the team in tackles with 91.

The New Orleans Saints signed Notree as an undrafted free agent (UDFA) but was released before organized team activities (OTAs) began. From there, he earned a spot on the Washington Commanders’ offseason roster through rookie minicamp. He was released on August 7.

Though Notree’s workout didn’t immediately result in a contract offer, Pittsburgh’s need for linebacker depth makes him a future possibility.
