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
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’.
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.
