Scotland boss Steve Clarke has revealed that Greg Taylor is carrying a ‘little injury’.
Many Hoops fans were left surprised to see that he had been left out the squad for the Euro 2024 double header against Cyprus and Spain.
His form this season under Ange Postecoglou has been absolutely terrific which is why many were left in disbelief as to why he wasn’t selected.
Clarke initially said that Taylor’s injury was a ‘Celtic issue’, which again raised eyebrows but he has now confirmed the extent of the problem and said that it is for ‘Celtic to elaborate on’.
It’s been yet another busy season for the 25-year-old fullback who has held off competition from Argentinian Alexandro Bernabei to be the Hoops first choice pick.
Taylor will likely benefit from a bit of a break and will join the rest of the players not on international duty at Lennoxtown.
“I have had a chat with Greg. It is really a Celtic issue, more than for me to comment on. He is carrying a little injury,” said Clarke as quoted by [Football Scotland].
“He will probably benefit from a rest rather than coming away with the national team. Celtic should elaborate on that a little bit.”
Clarke knows Taylor very well from their time at Kilmarnock together and although he has to compete against two of Scotland’s most high profile players in captain Andrew Robertson and Kieran Tierney, he has still regularly been selected.
Some Cetic fans will be delighted that Taylor is not joining up with the rest of the Scotland squad as it means less chance of him picking up an even further injury.
Maybe Greg is pregnant?
You just can’t tell these days.
