The Gunners full-back will grant a young supporters wish of meeting him before they take on Liverpool on Wednesday

Kieran Tierney has promised to set up a meeting with a young disabled fan ahead of Arsenals match against Liverpool on Wednesday.

The young supporter, named Cameron, has Cerebral Palsy and will be attending an Arsenal match for the last time before he undergoes major surgery.

Camerons mother posted on Twitter that he is a section of bone removed from each of his legs in order to straighten them.

Tony Smith, who is training with the youngster, posted an appeal on Twitter to make his hero Tierney aware of the hard work he has been putting in.

“I have been training Cameron for months now, he is incredibly hard working and loves Arsenal,” Smith wrote. “He has got tickets to the disability section for Wednesday’s game v Liverpool and it would mean the world to him if he could meet [Tierney].”

Cameron you are a inspiration. I would love to meet you before the game. What a hero❤️❤️ let’s get that sorted @Arsenal https://t.co/0mIepySc8K

The appeal worked as Tierney soon posted a response, saying: “Cameron you are an inspiration. I would love to meet you before the game. What a hero. Let’s get that sorted.”In response to a tweet about Tierneys response, Camerons mum, Clare Taylor, wrote: “Cameron’s over the moon. I’m nearly deaf from the screaming! I’m in tears here. You guys are amazing thank you.”

The Gunners host Jurgen Klopps men in north London with the aim of stretching their Premier League winning run to six matches and consolidate their hold on a place in the top-four.

They are in fourth place heading into the match but sit just one point above rivals Manchester United, while West Ham sit three points behind.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are looking to increase the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City.

The Reds are second in the table and three points adrift of pole position.
