Celtic Star Greg Taylor’s Hiccups Video with BBC Sport Scotland

The only hiccups Celtic had on Saturday...Greg Taylor’s wee bout of hiccups didn’t stop him getting through this interview with BBC Sport Scotland after yesterday’s 4-0 win over Aberdeen at Celtic Park which maintains the nine points lead at the top of the league, looking down on theRangers

That’s nine wins on the bounce, 31 goals scored and another clean sheet and the momentum very much in tact…an unusually positive spin from the BBC when referring to Celtic. “Yep, another strong performance. We started the game very wetland got the job done.”

Asked what it’s like playing in this Celtic team at the moment Celtic’s left back reckons it’s really enjoyable. “Really enjoyable, everyone works so hard throughout the week just to gain an opportunity at the weekend and the Bhoys anytime they are given an opportunity, take it, even the subs coming on today all contributed again.”

On who drives the standards, is it the manager or is it coming from the players? “It’s everyone, to be honest. The manager sets the tone, we all know we can’t fall below his standards. Now we have got a strong group and everyone is so eager to play and eager to impress and play so everyday the level is so high,” Taylor said.

“The team is the reason we get clean-sheets. The pressing starts at the front. Today it was Oh and sometimes it’s Kyogo, then you’ve got the wingers, whoever plays, they start the press and they do so much work for the team so it’s important to realise that the clean sheets and the defensive success comes from the collective.”

Moving onto the next game, next Sunday’s Viaplay League Cup Final against theRangers at Hampden and Taylor is already relishing the thought of winning another trophy. “It’s what the club demands – trophies, success and a strong way of playing – so that’s what we aim to do. We’ll be ready when the weekend comes but we’ll have four or five sessions in between where we will try and impress the manager first.

“We’re a strong team with strong beliefs but we don’t focus on anyone else, we focus on ourselves and trying to be the best version of ourselves and we aim to do that in training on Monday.

“Our fans are unbelievable, whether it’s home or away or at Hampden they’re there supporting us in their numbers and we’re grateful for that and can’t wait to put on a strong performance for them at Hampden,” Taylor said.

Here’s hoping there are no Celtic hiccups at Hampden next Sunday!

Here’s the Unique Angle from yesterday…


Don’t forget there’s some Friday Night Football under the lights this coming Friday when Fran Alonso’s title challenging Celtic side take on theRangers at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie with the match only open to Celtic supporters.  Celtic are a point ahead of theRangers at the moment and three behind Glasgow City who we play a week on Sunday, also over at Airdrie.  A win against theRangers takes Celtic to the top of the league and a win the following Sunday will really put Celtic in the driving seat for our first ever SWPL1 Title. Get along and support the team, for  full ticket details click below…COYGIG!
