Celtic fans drool over Greg Taylor after Kilmarnock win

Celtic came from behind to move 12 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table on Sunday afternoon, meaning they are well on track for a ninth straight league title.

Neil Lennon’s side eased to a 3-1 victory against Kilmarnock after the visitors netted an early 6th-minute penalty.

Goals from Kristoffer Ajer, Odsonne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths sealed all three points at Celtic Park.

Who should be first-choice left-back?

But it wasn’t any of these three players that received glowing praise from fans after the match, but instead, it was left-back Greg Taylor, who was making only his 12th SPFL appearance of the season.

Here’s what has been said…

There were a range of superlatives used to describe the 22-year-old, including “grafter, “talented,” and “outstanding” whilst one supporter tipped the defender to become a stalwart at the club.

Another fan claimed he was progressing with every single game and that he would only improve under the current coaching staff.

It has led to many more suggesting that he’s their best option at left-back with more raving endorsements backing the Scotland international.

Lennon is also able to call upon Boli Bolingoli and Jonny Hayes in the role, but it is Taylor who is seemingly getting the nod in the eyes of the Bhoys faithful.

Bolingoli was described as a “disaster” of a footballer while a further supporter suggested that Taylor was a much better option than the “hit or miss” Belgian.

His potential was also noted with one fan believing he has a great future ahead – might he become as good as Tosh McKinlay for the Scottish giants? This member of the Hoops crowd certainly thinks so…

McKinlay enjoyed a five-year spell at Celtic Park back in the late nineties and was a regular presence until he was displaced by Stephane Mahe before joining Stoke City on loan.
