The patience of some Celtic fans struck rock bottom today with a report that the club were in talks to sign Lyle Taylor.

Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie broke the news on a day dominated by discussions over how strong Celtic’s interest is in Steven Fletcher.

Downie is better known for breaking news from Ibrox but with Neil Lennon clearly looking to bring in a striker a Championship player on a free transfer is bound to be on interest.

At 32-years-old however and with just one season in The Championship on his CV the one time Partick Thistle and Falkirk striker doesn’t seem to be the type to fire Celtic into the group phase of the Champions League.

Scoring 11 goals in 17 Championship matches is a decent return but mindful of his future Taylor opted out of playing post Lockdown to avoid injury as he becomes a free agent.

Celtic’s prospects of signing Albion Ajeti or Ivan Toney don’t seem to be improving but with two months to run in the transfer window many fans aren’t yet ready to drop their expectation levels down to Taylor.
