GREG TAYLOR is out with a shoulder injury at the moment. Reports have claimed the defender is set for a new deal with Celtic to extend his stay beyond the 22/23 season. [RecordSport]
Diego Laxalt couldn’t make it work at Celtic and also left after his loan deal from the club.
it’s a problem position where Greg is our best left back at the moment.
The news of Celtic looking to tie him up doesn’t surprise me, but we should be aiming for real competition in that area of the pitch.
Adam Montgomery is starting to play more games and could be someone down the line who takes the mantle. However, at this point, Adam cannot be overexposed.
Greg can be steady without doing anything exciting and for Celtic full-backs, it’s not really enough sometimes. In the SPFL, the Scottish international can certainly play his part, but in Europe, it’s hard to see what he can bring.
Celtic fans have been reacting to the contract talks and we’ve captured some of their thoughts below.
So Greg Taylor is due a new contract with a pay increase to go along with it…
In all seriousness, what has Greg Taylor done to deserve a new deal?! ?
He's been at Celtic almost three years & I'm still clueless to what he's actually good at.

As long as he's not seen as the long term first choice at LB, I've no problem with Greg Taylor getting a new contract. It's not as if we're flush with cash and can afford 2 quality players for every position.

We should be actively looking to get rid of Greg Taylor, not giving him a new contract.

The news that Greg Taylor is getting a pay rise at Celtic must bring hope to every under-performing , out-of-his-depth employee in Scotland.
