GREG TAYLOR is set for a new contract and a pay rise from Celtic according to reports on Tuesday evening.The defender has been out with a shoulder injury recently but before that he was Ange’s first choice left-back.
The former Kilmarnock man had fought off initial competition from Boli Bolingoli and then Diego Laxalt last season to be Celtic’s left-back.
It’s a position that has caused Celtic no end of problems since letting go of Kieran Tierney.
Taylor gets a mixed reaction from fans with many in the support believing the club should be shooting much higher in his position.
Taylor is a hard worker but he’s struggled at times under Ange and last season under Neil Lennon – but so did many players.
If Greg is in line for a new deal, it means Ange sees enough in the defender to not only keep him around for now – but he sees Greg here further down the line.
