Celtic: Journalist tips Neil Taylor as possible Hoops target -Celtic Transfer Rumours

The Daily Record’s Mark Pirie has suggested Celtic could be wise to look into a move for free agent Neil Taylor.

The Lowdown: Taylor still without a club; Celtic’s left-back woes

Taylor, who won 43 caps for Wales, is still without a club after leaving Aston Villa in the summer.

The 32-year-old spent four-and-a-half years at Villa Park and made 103 appearances in the Midlands but is yet to find a new team.

Celtic have had their issues at left-back recently after Greg Taylor required shoulder surgery, with outcast Boli Bolingoli returning for one appearance and Josip Juranovic switching over from right-back on a few occasions.

The Latest: Pirie’s suggestion

Pirie shared a story on The Daily Record on Tuesday morning, looking at seven free agents who could solve solutions in Ange Postecoglou’s squad.

One of those was Taylor, with Pirie describing a potential cut-price move as a ‘savvy piece of business’.

How well do you remember these Celtic signings? First up, where did Christopher Jullien arrive from?

The Verdict: Worth a punt?

Teenager Adam Montgomery is highly thought of by Postecoglou and could be viewed as the club’s long-term left-back answer, so bringing in Taylor for nothing could help the youngster’s development.

If Postecoglou isn’t sure on Bolingoli long-term, and with Greg Taylor out, bringing in another Taylor, who has close to 150 games of experience in the Premier League could be a shrewd move, which would then give him three options when the Scot returns from injury.
