    Another good performance from him tonight.

    Boli is number for me 1 because he offers more going forward but Taylor is a solid deputy and someone we can develop into a first team player over a few seasons.

    Played a really good second half. First half was pretty poor from the whole team.

    I think Taylor will impress in Bolis absence and Boli could find it hard to shift Taylor out.

    Taylor is more of an out and out left back and im sure he will go on to surprise quite a lot with how good he is technically.

    I’ve not seen much of him but I do think he looks like a really good player.

    Quietly optimistic about him.

    Good to see him getting some game time, played decent enough the 2 games plus a couple of assists

    He is a steady performer and has quality on the ball. Dont let his relatively small size fool you either, he likes a tackle. See his tackle on Joey Barton for example.

    111 appearances for Killie at the age of 21 should give you an idea of the talent he has.

    He has potential and that’s why we bought him.

    Miles off an automatic first pick Celtic left back at this point though, plenty to learn.

    No he isnt at all, i can tell you havnt seen much of Killie because He was a stand out for Stevie Clarke.
    Every player should always be learning. And in any case no more than any other 22 year old.

    You’re right, I’ve got sleeping tablets if I ever struggle to sleep.

    He's actually pretty good going forward..

    Will use his right foot if need be, links up well and has a final delivery..

    He's no that quick or doesn't seem it....maybe just still a bit rusty, quite weak and defensively get's caught out though..

    Plenty to work with..

    This is the one position that is not 100% nailed down, in my opinion.
    I would like to see both Boli and Taylor alternated over the season.

    Decent game but hold off the champagne a bit. The Kazakhstan team is atrocious. It is a best of the rest of the kazakh league (most of the Astana team is foreign). He deserves to be tested more and I want him to get more game time but putting him above Bolingoli is unthinkable at the moment

    He also played well against the Belgians when he made his Scotland debut !! We have a long season ahead, no reason why he can’t get plenty game time, especially with Boli out
