Things appear to be falling into place once again at Celtic. The Hoops did stumble out of the gates this season but a 1-0 win away at Ibrox has been followed up by a 3-0 win over Dundee FC at home. Those results have seen them go two points clear at the top of the Premiership table. Now, it remains to be seen if they can build on this newfound momentum.
That does not mean that every player has still come to grips with Brendan Rodgers’ style of football. In fact, a few might not be the right fit for the Northern Irishman’s system.
One player whose performances have raised a lot of questions this season is Greg Taylor. The Scot has remained a starter for Celtic but for how much longer?
Frank McAvennie reckons that Taylor needs to stop running into midfield if he is to keep his place in Rodgers’ team. As reported by Football Insider, the former Celtic player said:
"“Taylor needs to stop running into midfield because he keeps forgetting that it is not what the manager wants. If he keeps doing it he will not be there for long because Rodgers won’t suffer it.“"
Celtic starter tipped to be dropped if he does not change
Taylor was a standout for Celtic during Ange Postecoglou’s run as manager of the club. One of the biggest reasons behind that was the fact that he got to play the role of an inverted full-back.
That seemed to suit Taylor brilliantly and he played the best football of his career as a result. Thus, he is one of the players who seems to have taken a step back since the departure of Postecoglou over the summer, as the Australian has joined Tottenham Hotspur.
It is worth pointing out that Taylor had done anything spectacular in his two years at Celtic before Postecoglou arrived. Could he revert back to that situation with the Australian gone?
One would hope not because the club do not have any genuine cover options at left-back right now. Alexandro Bernabei has failed to match expectations since joining from Lanus.
