During the summer Celtic had no left-backs at the club after Kieran Tierney headed to London and left a £25m cheque behind him. Tierney was hands down the best left-back at Celtic for over a decade. The task of bringing someone in to replace him seemed impossible.
Now Neil Lennon has a choice of three left-backs and so far they have all played a big part in Celtic’s success this season. It seemed like the manager couldn’t pin down a favourite for the position but maybe Greg Taylor is playing his way as the first choice man.
Lennon singled out Taylor’s performance in Wednesday nights trashing of Hearts in his post-match interviews.
“I was really pleased with Greg Taylor on Wednesday, I thought he was immense. He was backed up by a lot of other individuals who are in a rich vein of form at the minute.”
Bolingoli seemed to own the shirt at the start of the season before Jonny Hayes started getting the nod just before the winter break. Since the new year, it has been Taylor who has been giving the chance but injuries have helped the managers decision making at times or at least up to this point.
After the young Scottish internationals performance against Hearts on Wednesday, it will be hard for Lennon to leave him out, in fact, the job is probably Taylors to lose now.
