Greg Taylor joined Neil Lennon’s Celtic from Kilmarnock in the summer transfer window.

Kilmarnock manager Angelo Alessio looks on during the Ladbrokes Premier League match between Kilmarnock and Rangers at Rugby Park on August 04, 2019 in Kilmarnock, Scotland.

Kilmarnock manager Angelo Alessio has told The Daily Record that Greg Taylor will do well at Celtic.

Celtic secured the services of Taylor from Scottish Premiership rivals Kilmarnock in the summer transfer window.


The 21-year-old left-back has arrived at Ibrox with a strong reputation, and the Scotland international is expected to fight for a place in the starting lineup with Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo.


Alessio believes that Taylor will do well at the Hoops and will be a success at Celtic.

Alessio told The Daily Record about Taylor: "I think he will do well at Celtic, he is a good guy and player, he's very professional. He now has a good opportunity to show this.”

Good signing for Celtic?

Taylor may be only 21 years of age, but the left-back is very experienced in the domestic arena.

The Scotland international has played over 100 matches for Kilmarnock, and the 21-year-old will bring with him a wealth of experience to Celtic.

It is not going to be easy for the youngster to replace Kieran Tierney in the team, but the Celtic Park faithful will hope that he gives his best.

Given that Taylor is only 21 years of age, there is the potential for the Scottish youngster to improve and get better in the coming years.
