Celtic’s Greg Taylor has disclosed that Liverpool’s Andy Robertson contacted him following the Hoops’ midweek win over Hearts, the Evening Times reports.
The duo know each other from their time in the Scotland squad, and Taylor has disclosed that Robertson congratulated him following the 5-0 win, which saw Taylor turn in one of his best displays in a Celtic jersey.
“A good relationship”
“Andy actually texted me just after we beat Hearts to congratulate me. I have a good relationship with him – he’s a top, top player and a good lad as well” Taylor said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“It’s important to be playing for your club if you want to be selected by your country but the important thing is to be performing well every week,” he concluded.
It must be a real shot of encouragement for Taylor to be in contact with a player who won the Champions League last season, and who looks set to win the Premier League in a matter of weeks.
Having that kind of elite level star available as a sounding board is likely beneficial through tougher spells too.
Taylor was particularly good against Hearts. He was a constant attacking threat, and provided an assist to Callum McGregor for his goal.
Must perform well to keep place in side
As he points out in his comments, the most important thing he has to do right now is perform well every week for the team.
Should that happen, he is more than capable of keeping his place in the Hoops squad. His next test will come against Aberdeen on Sunday.
Hopefully he turns in another good performance. Should that happen, he could receive more words of support from Andy Robertson.
