”The euphoria took over my body,” Greg Taylor on his vital winner

Celtic overcame three dodgy VAR decisions earlier today which made the win at Tynecastle all the more enjoyable and the icing on the cake came later in the afternoon with Livingston being unlucky to leave Ibriox with just one point after their 1-1 draw against theRangers.

However, Greg Taylor stepped up and secured all three points for the Bhoys with a late goal, netting Celtic’s fourth goal of the match and he didn”t know it at the time but it was a goal that would ultimately double Celtic’s lead to four points at the top of the league looking down on theRangers.

Greg Taylor drifted forward from his left full-back position right up to the Hearts 6-yard box where he tapped in a deflected shot from Liel Abada like a top quality poacher. Taylor has been exceptional this season and last under the management of Ange Postecoglou, slotting easily into the manager’s unique style of football and looking like a confident left-back perhaps the best in the country.

Coming on from the bench and scoring the winner, which was also his first premiership goal for Celtic, put Taylor in a state of ‘euphoria’. Speaking to CelticTV after the match, Taylor said…

“It was a good feeling to score and an important three points most importantly.

“I think it’s important to add it wasn’t the manager’s instruction to play as high as I did. I seen the play develop out there, and as Liel went to shoot or cross, I gambled to be honested and thankfully I managed to get a toe on it.”

”The euphoria took over my body, and to do it in front of that outstanding away support was just amazing. It’s right up there. you can’t control yourself. it’s just pure elation. the fans deserved that. they backed up even when we went down in periods.

“I’m a wee bit speechless. it was just amazing.”

Taylor’s late goal could prove to be critical in Celtic’s title ambitions, as theRangers were hoping to draw level on points today with their game against Livingston. However, unfortunately for them, Livingston held theRangers to a 1-1 draw. So, Taylor’s heroic actions have helped the Hoops further extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to four points ahead of theRangers.
