Celtic sold Kieran Tierney to Arsenal earlier this month, and they may yet turn to a former Rangers talent to replace him.
The Bhoys had fended off Arsenal for weeks, but eventually sold their prized asset to the Gunners just before the English transfer deadline.
Boli Bolingoli was signed from Rapid Vienna earlier this summer to offer depth in that area of the pitch, but he's looked a little frail defensively.
A more defensively sound defender will be targeted before the transfer window shuts, and Celtic are being strongly linked with a move for Kilmarnock ace Taylor.
The Daily Record claim that Celtic once again scouted Taylor this weekend against Hamilton Academical, ahead of a potential move for the 21-year-old.
Taylor has impressed since leaving Rangers for Killie, emerging as yet another talented young Scottish left back, with his defensive play particularly strong.
Now, Taylor has responded to those Celtic rumours, telling the Record that it can only positive if teams want him, but he hasn't spoken to manager Angelo Alessio about a move as no bid has been made, and he's just focusing on life at Rugby Park right now.
“I’m contracted to Kilmarnock so I’ve just got to keep doing what I can. If that’s enough to impress other teams that can only be a positive,” said Taylor. “I’ve not had to speak to the manager about it yet because there’s not been a bid come 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,” he added.
