Greg Taylor had his online critics back-tracking and deleting after Celtic’s 1-0 win away to Sarajevo.

A week ago in Riga the former Kilmarnock defender was having almost every aspect of his performance hammered with few dissenting voices.

Suggesting that playing left back is very different to left wing-back cut no ice as some claimed that he could neither attack or defend in Celtic’s 3-5-2 system. The real issue was that he isn’t Kieran Tierney while there is barely a wing-back in the UK that can match up favourably against Jeremie Frimpong.

A year ago Taylor arrived just as Boli Bolingoli found some form with Jonny Hayes as a very dependable deputy.

The Killie defender was cup-tied from the League Cup but towards the turn of the year and after the winter break opportunities started to crop up.

It’s almost certain that Celtic will sign a left sided player before midnight on Monday but whoever arrives will have to bide their time trying to oust Taylor from the slot he is looking increasingly comfortable in.
