Celtic fans praise Greg Taylor's performance against Sarajevo
Celtic’s Greg Taylor had an interesting game against Sarajevo on Thursday in the Europa League play-off. The left-back constantly worked hard for the Hoops on the left-wing, but his final ball wasn’t always the best.
However, he came into the game far more in the second-half, and was probably one of Celtic’s best performers on the night in the 1-0 win.
Taylor is currently playing for the Hoops in the knowledge that the team will be looking to sign another left-back before the transfer window slams shut. However, that hasn’t stopped Neil Lennon from putting his faith in the left-back, as he has featured for the Hoops 11 times this season.
Easy to see why manager rates player
You can see why Neil Lennon is a fan of the player. He works very hard, and always keeps going for 90 minutes. That might seem like obvious things that a footballer would do. However, it is the kind of thing that a manager appreciates. That makes him a kind of unsung hero. He doesn’t get the glory some other players do.
Even if Celtic do sign a left-back before the end of the transfer window, there is no guarantee that they will beat Taylor to a first-team spot.
At the moment, the left-back position is Taylor’s to lose. The new signing, whoever it may be, will have to work very hard to get a place in the starting line-up.
Remember, if the Hoops has lost the team would have been out of Europe completely, which would have been a catastrophe. Thanks to the likes of Taylor, that was never really in danger of happening.
It seems that some Celtic fans on social media also appreciated Taylor’s performance in what was a huge game for Celtic.
Man of the match worthy performance
One fan described his performance as being man of the match worthy. Another felt that he worked hard all night and called for the ‘critics’ to get off the player’s back.
It remains to be seen if that will happen. Still, it was a good performance from Taylor, and it was good to see some fans support him.
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to Taylor’s performance:
Well done Greg Taylor, fought for every ball. Good game mate

For all the criticism that he gets most weeks, Greg Taylor had a fine game tonight, and a special mention to our captain again, the biggest myth you will hear is that Scott Brown plays too many backward passes, nonsense, drove the team on all night, well done Celtic 🍀💚
