- Celtic’s Greg Taylor could be set for his second appearance in Europe this season when the Hoops take on Copenhagen in the Europa League on Thursday. He has fond memories of his European debut, as reported by the Celtic View.
Taylor made his first European appearance for Celtic in the 3-1 Europa League win over Rennes in December, and it is a moment he won’t forget in a hurry.
“I remember in the Rennes game just being taken back by the atmosphere initially” he said, as quoted by the Celtic View (Volume 55, Issue 29, Page 24).
Taylor went on to mention how the atmosphere created by the fans helped the Hoops on the night.
“The fans definitely affect you but in a good way, you’re able to stay focused and have them help you along. You just have to embrace those kind of experiences and enjoy them and with a result like that you can.”
Celtic Park European nights can often be special.
Therefore, it is good to see that Taylor’s first experience of such a fixture was so memorable.
Impressed in recent performances
The left-back has been in excellent form for the Hoops recently, he was particularly good in the midweek 5-0 win over Hearts, where he was a constant attacking threat and provided an assist to Callum McGregor for his goal.
Neil Lennon has been highly complimentary of the player as well, as he said, as quoted by BBC Sport that the left-back had an ‘outstanding game’ against Hearts.
Taylor might well get the nod to make his second European appearance for the Hoops in the trip to Copenhagen. His recent performances indicate that he deserves a start.
Should he get the start, it will be a different test for the player, compared to the Rennes game. It will be his first European away game for the Hoops.
However, he is playing so well at the moment that he should be confident about performing well in the match.
