Celtic defender Greg Taylor has spoken about how much the players from within the squad are enjoying working under current interim boss John Kennedy, ahead of this weekends Glasgow Derby.

In an interview with Celtic TV, in the derby games, this season Celtic have been disappointing in the vast majority of them, coming away with just one point so far.

Taylor stated the importance of this fixture even with nothing to play for, whilst also bigging up Kennedy who he claims the squad have ‘enjoyed’ working under.

“You take each game as it comes.

“Right now, Kendo is the manager and everyone is enjoying working under him and learning so that’s what we will continue to do.

“I maybe wouldn’t say we haven’t performed as much [against Rangers] but we certainly didn’t get the results we wanted in the last few derbies.

“So it is important that we take our chances and hopefully go and get the win.

“Every time you pull on the Celtic jersey there is a pride there and that can’t change for the last three games.

“So that means there is nine points to play for and that will be the aim.”

Taylor has been in and out of the side all season but with it being likely that he will be at the club going into next season, you would imagine the left-back will be starting the remaining three games including the derby fixture on Sunday ahead of Diego Laxalt.

It is interesting to see not only Taylor but several players talk up Kennedy and his abilities as a coach.

Ultimately though, it is probably best and the right time to move on for the interim boss in order to go and set up a managerial career of his own.
