Plenty of Celtic fans have sung the praises of Greg Taylor after comments made by the defender were shared on the club’s official Twitter account @CelticFC.
The 22-year-old told celticfc.net that his ambition while at the club has always been to carve out a regular first team berth, voicing his belief that he can achieve that mission despite the level of competition for places in Neil Lennon’s starting XI.
Taylor has had to be patient for a prolonged chance in the team during his first season at Parkhead, making just three Premiership starts going into the winter break but currently on a run of four consecutive starts in the top flight for Celtic (as per TransferMarkt). He made a valuable contribution to Wednesday’s 5-0 win over Hearts with his involvement in two goals, providing the pass for Callum McGregor’s finish and picking out Ryan Christie for the Hoops’ fourth of the night (as per Sky Sports).
His display in midweek was hailed as a “coming of age performance” by Hamish Carton of 67hailhail.com and these Celtic fans on Twitter showed what they think of the 22-year-old left-back, with one supporter saying that Taylor “looks comfortable in the jersey”:
Of course you can ,got my vote.
