    Thought he had a good game tonight,so long as its defending and not trying to beat a man into the box he does ok.

    As always, he isn't a terrible player, he just isn't Celtic class for being our main guy at left back/Left wingback.

    He most certainly is not a wingback either way, it does not help him or us.

    Can't fault the lads efforts and passion, can't fault him for giving it a go, and he is adequate.
    Think he can improve a lot as well, but he is backup to someone better for us.



    Either way, no matter what, we need another left back regardless if he was on a par with Jordi Alba or Lee Naylor

    He seems to have stepped it up a bit recently

    Great game tonight he struggled a bit at the start going forward when they were sitting back but that was it. Thought he was solid defensively and worked his bollox off. Some good link up and couple good balls in to the box that weren’t met

    Imagine greg taylor gets a motm, you'll still find people blaming him for celtic not scoring enough goals, not being more attacking, not having a better midfield.
    And if we dont win the league this season taylor will be the scape goat. Give it a rest, hes one of the only players on the pitch who puts his all into every game... there were far worse players on tonight and every other game this season than him.

    Was good at the back. I think we all know that’s his forte. You can see he’s improving a bit going forward as well in the last few games. Fair play to him.

    I feel sorry for him tbh, he is being asked to play a role he has no experience of, he is a LB first and foremost. That said you can’t fault the boys effort for the team.

    Worked really hard, good defensively, a few poor crosses first half, improved second half.

    Whatever anyone thinks of him he has always given 100% and has never hid during a game and I respect him for that. All we can ask of a player is to do their best, after that it's down to the manager.

    Not nearly half as bad as some make out. Still wouldn’t have him as first choice LB but a good back up option to have.

    I probably would have him as our first choice LB, depending on who, if anyone, comes in obviously. The problem is we aren't playing with a LB, which is his natural position, we are playing with a LWB. I think he's good defensively and with someone like a fully fit Mikey Johnston in front of him I think he would do well if we reverted to a back 4. He's fine as back up as a LWB, but if we are sticking with the 352, and wing backs, we need someone that's better than him for that role.

    He is improving every game, a goal would do him the world of good.

    I really like him as a squad player, we just need a bit better to start every week, that’s all.
