    Think I'd rather that than Bauer and Frimpong as FBs..

    He did for lazio away, if Boli or Hayes isn't fit I'd rather see that than one of bauer or frimpong at left back.

    Would be a bit of a shame as Mo will make an absolute * of tavernier otherwise.

    Greg Taylor was quite attacking for Scotland and against Livingston, he would show Tavenier up. I think Mikey and elyounoussi would too.

    I don't doubt it, but I think elyonoussi will be sinclair first season level of ripping the pish out him.

    His deliveries into the box are brilliant, makes great attacking runs plus is solid defensively. I'd start him against Rennes, needs the game time and some European experience will go a long way for his confidence.

    GT: "It's been good to get minutes at Celtic and for Scotland. It's been a good couple of weeks so I hope to keep that going."


    GT: "It's well documented how busy December is. The squad will be needed and it's important to take opportunities whenever called upon."

    GT: "Tomorrow night is a chance to win the group and hopefully we can do that. As the gaffer says, it's important to keep our focus on the here and now."



    GT: "I aim to do what I've done for the past three years, performing at a consistent level. After a couple of assists for Scotland, I want to continue what I have been doing."

    Cementing himself in well, combative and smart player defensively. Always willing to make runs actually more attacking than I thought he would be, tidy on the ball fitting in really well and should pick up a lot off Ajer, McGregor, Christie, Forrest and that.

    I also think he is decent in the air for a wee guy, good leap on him and willing to attack a ball. Tierney wouldn't go near a header.

    Two good options at full back now.

    Taylor doesn't have the same pace or attacking threat of Boli (albeit he still puts in some good crosses), but looks a bit more assured defensively.

    Tidy, no nonsense defender. Looks as though he could do a good job for club and Country.

    As has been mentioned likes to keep it simple but I like how he does get the ball moving quick. Like the mikey goal today, first touch, pass and opens right up.

    Doesn't seem to flounder about with the ball and likes to keep up the tempo

    It's really early days with Taylor but Ive not been all that impressed with him in the way i was when Elhamed stepped on the pitch - he proved me wrong immediately.

    Think Taylor's the type you absolutely want as a squad option but I don't think he's good enough to be the first choice long term.

    Think the best way to put it is that "he's just alright".

    He seems to be coming onto a game. Like the look of him so far. Would benefit from a regular left winger ahead if him.
