Greg Taylor was given a start by Neil Lennon in Celtic’s midweek trip to St Johnstone. The left-back responded in style by turning in probably his best performance for the Hoops so far.
He was a constant threat on the left-side, and put in a series of excellent cross. It was no surprise to see one of his pinpoint crosses finished in style by Leigh Griffiths, who volleyed home to put the Hoops 3-0 up.
The game ended 3-0 to the Hoops, who were comfortable winners.
Left-back thrived in manager’s formation
Taylor thrived in the 3-5-2 formation picked by Neil Lennon, and plenty of Celtic fans on social media were impressed with Taylor’s performance.
One fan claimed that the left-back had been ‘brilliant’. Another claimed that he was ‘the best left-back at the club’.
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to Taylor’s performance:

Greg Taylor has been class tonight btw. Anyone who thinks he doesn’t offer anything in attack needs to have a word with themselves.

Greg Taylor…. that’s our left-back or left-mid if we play 3 at the back.
Play him. It’s that simple.
Superb crosses, is defensively aware, can beat a man and he makes the right decisions.

Taylor was so good for the Hoops against St Johnstone that he really should keep his place in the side for Sunday’s game against Hamilton.
Should be given run of games
Neil Lennon might decide to make some changes to his starting line-up for the game, as the Hoops have such a busy schedule coming up.
However, Taylor now deserves a run of games in the team. He has shown in some of his recent performances for the Hoops how good a player he can be.
He has saved his best performance for against Kilmarnock though. If you are picking Celtic’s best side at the moment, then Taylor has to be in it.
