Celtic defender Greg Taylor is edging closer to a return to first-team action, as Ange Postecoglou gave an update on the left-backs injury progress.

The 24-year old has been out since the Hoops 3-0 victory over Ross County in early September due to a recurring shoulder injury that first came to fruition in the Europa League play-off fixture against AK Alkmaar, which he was then forced to have surgery on.

However, Ange Postecoglou revealed the latest on his progress from that injury, stating that the defender should be able to return in the next 2-3 weeks.

“With Greg, he’s got to still get his clearance on the shoulder, but he’s doing everything apart from joining in contact training,” he said, speaking to Celtic TV.

“We hope he gets all-clear in the next sort of, two or three weeks. [That would mean] he’ll be back available, and it’ll be great to get him back, as well.”

Despite the injury, Taylor recently signed a new deal with the club that will see him remain with the Hoops until 2025.

So, it is clear to see that Ange Postecoglou believes the Scotland internationalist has a future in his side.

So far this campaign, the left-back position has arguably been our most unsettled, with the likes of Adam Montgomery, Boli Bolingoli and Josip Juranovic all sharing the role at points.

It will certainly be interesting to see when Taylor returns if he slots straight back in that position.
