Greg Taylor’s form hasn’t gone unnoticed by the manager. He’s been superb ever since he returned from his shoulder injury last season and has come on leaps and bounds as a player under Postecoglou’s guidance.

With competition arriving in the summer, Taylor looks to be unfazed as he carries on performing well.

He’s adapted to the inverted role extremely well and suits it well. He was never the type of football to take the ball, beat a few players and get to the byline and cross it in, but he has developed some attributes on the ball which he’s had on show during the first few games of this season.

His resilience has been critical to Ange Postecoglou’s success so far. The Celtic boss was full of praise for the left-back, saying; [Football Scotland]

Taylor is going really well this season, but he was also going really well last season too,” the Australian said.

“The way we play with our full-backs is a little bit different, and Greg has adapted really well to it.

“He was really strong for us last season and has continued in the first few games.

“Greg has started really well again but he wants to get better. That’s the important thing, he wants to improve.

“He is still a young man, and I’m pleased that he is continuing to develop his game. But I also think there are more levels to come from him.”

Greg Taylor, Celtic’s Unsung Hero

The defender doesn’t get nearly as much praise as he deserves. It’s only recently that he’s starting to get recognised.

He’ll be looking to keep Bernabei out of the team for as long as possible, and keep impressing those watching him.
