“I do the worst celebration known to man,” says Celtic Star Greg Taylor

Celtic full-back, Greg Taylor, has admitted that his celebrations after scoring a goal leave a lot to be desired, as they are the ‘worst known to man’.

Taylor explains that, for a full-back, shooting for goal isn’t a huge part of his game, dominating your flank and defending your goal is the main priority for a full-back. However, the Celtic left-back reveals that in the system that Ange has the Hoops playing, he finds himself further up the field, and in positions to shoot more often. With this in mind, Taylor says he is keen to improve his finishing as he believes that if everyone is scoring goals, it will benefit the club as a whole.

So far this season, Taylor has put the ball in the back of the net three times this season, two against Livingston, and one in the dramatic 4-3 victory over Hearts. However, while Taylor is successfully improving his ability to find the net, he concedes that his celebrations still need a bit of work.

As reported by the Scotsman, Taylor said…

“It’s been nice to get on the scoresheet. In the system we play you find yourself in these positions a bit more often. I get incredibly excited every time I score and do the worst celebration known to man. It’s a great feeling and I’d love to do it on a more regular basis. Whether that happens we can only wait and see.”

“I wouldn’t say it’s something that’s honed in on as a full-back in terms of practising your shooting but there’s definitely drills during the week that you take part in that does hopefully improve that. But it’s not just shooting there’s a lot of improvements in my game that I need to make and I’m trying to make every day. The more of us that can chip in with goals because we do try to spread it around the team can only benefit us a club.”
