Recently, the Daily Record linked Kilmarnock star Greg Taylor with a move to Celtic. The man himself has all but put an end to those rumours, at least for now.

The Killie full-back was being touted as the replacement for recently departed Celtic star Kieran Tierney.

Now Taylor has set the record straight. He says he is happy at Kilmarnock, whilst also confirming the club haven’t received any bids for him.

He told the Daily Record: “I’m contracted to Kilmarnock so I’ve just got to keep doing what I can. If that’s enough to impress other teams that can only be a positive.

“I’ve not had to speak to the manager about it yet because there’s not been a bid come in.

“If you’re not doing that the suitors and talk about moves will quickly go away. So it’s important to get the head down and just work hard.”

Taylor seems happy enough at Kilmarnock

At the age of 21, Taylor has racked up well over 100 appearances for the Rugby Park side. He is an experienced young player, a rare combination in the modern game.

It’s no surprise that teams like Celtic are after Taylor. His performances over the last couple of seasons especially for Kilmarnock have been brilliant.

This run of form was highlighted with a Scotland cap at the start of the summer. He made his international debut against European giants Belgium and didn’t look one bit out of place.

He clearly has a good head on his shoulders and seems happy enough at Kilmarnock. They’ve endured a bumpy start to life under new boss Angelo Alessio, so the influence of stars like Taylor will be vital.

Taylor looks likely to stay at Kilmarnock for the time being. There is no denying though that big things lie in wait for the left-back.
