So far this season, left-back has been a bit of a problem area for Ange Postecoglou and his side, with several first-team players having an opportunity in that area of the pitch.
At the beginning of the season, it looked like Scotland internationalist Greg Taylor would have that position pretty much nailed down.
However, he has since picked up a shoulder injury, and Ange gave the latest on the progress from his recovery, suggesting he could have to wait until next year before seeing Taylor back in first-team action.
Speaking to the Glasgow Times after Saturday’s win over St Johnstone, Postecoglou said: “Greg’s had an operation on his shoulder; it’s about four weeks since he started rehab, so he’s still a good couple of months away.
“It’s a contact thing where we have to be careful.”
With right-back Josip Juranovic returning to the starting line-up, at left-back on Saturday – added in with the fact both Boli Bolingoli and Liam Scales were missing from the matchday squad, it does begin to beg the question as to what Ange has planned until Taylor returns at the very least.
It could suggest that the Hoops boss might be planning a move for another left-back to join his squad come the January transfer window, with the former Socceroos manager looking to add more quality to that position.
For now, though, it will be interesting to see who Ange continues to go with at left-back, with some crucial games on the horizon over the winter period.
