‘Too Small, Too Slight’: This Rangers Reject Is Determined To Prove His Worth Amid Celtic Rumours

Kieran Tierney’s move to Arsenal was a matter of ‘when’ rather than ‘if’ and Celtic should now eye more signings before the window is slammed shut in less than a couple of weeks’ time. Neil Lennon roped in Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo from Rapid Vienna earlier this summer. But the Belgian left-back is yet to fulfil expectations, and the gaffer might bring in a new fullback to cover as well as challenge the 24-year-old defensive ace.

There have been rumours (according to Spanish outlet Rincon Escoses specialising in Scottish football) of Celtic’s interest in Kilmarnock youngster Greg Taylor who enjoyed a blistering 2018-19 season under Steve Clarke.

The Scotsman’s fine form earned him his senior international debut against Belgium a couple of months back, and a switch to Parkhead is now being speculated even though Killie are yet to receive an offer for their prized asset.

“I’ve not had to speak to the manager about it yet because there’s not been a bid comes in. You don’t really have any choice, you’ve got to do your job on a Saturday. If you’re not doing that the suitors and talk about moves will quickly go away. So it’s important to get the head down and just work hard.”

Taylor, however, is determined to impress his suitors and secure a high-profile transfer in the forthcoming future, according to Football Scotland.

Should Lennon Step Up The Chase 

A shocking defeat against CFR Cluj knocked Celtic out of the Champions League qualifiers. The Scottish champions have made a boisterous start in the Premiership. However, the necessity of more new signings has been highlighted time and again, particularly after an array of summer exits.

Rangers released Taylor at the age of 16 for being “too small and too slight“. But he made his way back in the limelight with the East Ayrshire side having played a crucial part in their third-place league finish the previous term. He knows the league through and through and therefore, would be an intelligent business by the Hoops in their quest to defend the Scottish throne.

What He Would Bring At Celtic

The youngster is not only capable of featuring as a fullback but also in a deep-lying midfield role. He may not have the physique to be combative in the middle of the park, but the technique and work ethics he holds make him one of the most versatile and exciting prospects in Scotland. He would add more firepower from the left flank with his timely overlapping runs and is expected to perform his responsibilities at the back when required.
