  • Greg Taylor: Our next game is always our priority

    Greg Taylor: Our next game is always our priority

  • CELTIC breezed past Hearts last night (Wednesday) with a comprehensive 5-0 victory at Paradise. Results elsewhere meant the Scottish champions extended their lead at the top of the Premiership to 10 points, but Greg Taylor said it’s too early to get excited about the gap.

    Instead, he and his team-mates remain perpetually focused on their own performances and their next game in turn. This Sunday, that's a trip to Aberdeen at Pittodrie. 

    “We had a good mini pre-season in Dubai, we’ve worked hard, and now we’ve got another big game on Sunday,” said Taylor. “There’s a long way to go, it’s only February. All focus goes on to the next game, and now we want to go to Pittodrie and hopefully get three points.”

    Taylor hailed the number of chances the Hoops created against Hearts, particularly in the second half, and said he’s thriving with Callum McGregor alongside him on the left.

    From here, the 22-year-old is determined to work hard, maintain his place in Neil Lennon’s starting XI, and continue developing his skillset, both on and off the pitch.

    He added: “I’m enjoying myself, we’re scoring a lot of goals and keeping clean sheets, which is what we want to do. Personally, I want to help the team score as many goals as I can, but at the same time, I’m a defender, so I want to keep clean sheets.

    “There is more onus on attacking play here at Celtic, and I was delighted to get two assists against Hearts. One of those might have been debatable, but I’m definitely taking it! I got one against St Johnstone the other week as well.

    “Whether we play in a three or a four at the back, there is always that license to join in the forward play whenever it’s on. I want to become a regular at Celtic, that was always my aim when I came through the door.

    “I understand that at a massive club like this, though, there is competition for places, but I’ve got full belief in myself that I can become a regular and that’s what I aim to do. Now, we turn our full focus on Aberdeen and getting three points at a tough ground.”
