“I think I’ve matured mentally and physically both on and off the pitch and handle things a lot better now. I think I’ve improved quite a bit now and I know what I’m about” he said, as reported by the official Aberdeen website.

He also disclosed that he has been impressed with how fellow centre-back Scott McKenna has improved as a player.

“Big Scott McKenna has done very well, and he was coming through when I was playing and has done great since he’s broke through.”

The Taylor return is certainly a bit of a surprise. However, Derek McInnes must feel that he is a player that he can trust.

Partnership will be intriguing

It will be intriguing to see how a defensive partnership Taylor and Scott McKenna fares in the Premiership next season.

If Taylor has improved as a player as much as he believes then he could be a more than worthwhile addition to the Dons squad.

Derek McInnes must feel that he has improved as a player. Which is why he has brought him back to the club. Only time will tell if the move was correct or not.
