Celtic: Fans defend Greg Taylor after tweet about ‘mixed’ European debut for Hoops

Celtic: Fans defend Greg Taylor after tweet about ‘mixed’ European debut for Hoops - Celtic

Many Celtic fans have rushed to the defence of left-back Greg Taylor in the wake of some concerning statistics stemming from his Europa League debut for the club last week.

Having joined the Hoops at the end of the summer transfer window, he played his first European game for the club in the 3-1 win over Rennes at Parkhead, although @Alan_Morrison67, a Celtic fan specialising in compiling numerical information on the club, tweeted that the defender had a “mixed but interesting” game, utilising some statistics to emphasise his point.

According to WhoScored, his passing success rate of 64.4% was the worst of anyone who featured for Neil Lennon’s team against Rennes last week, misplacing 21 of his 59 passes on the night.

Only one of his seven long balls found a team-mate, while he did not put in any accurate crosses or make any interceptions, although his tally of three successful tackles was bettered only by Ryan Christie in the Hoops’ line-up. [via WhoScored]
