Lennon confirms that Celtic left-back Greg Taylor’s injury may not be as bad as first feared.

Taylor went down early doors in the first half of Celtic’s 2-1 win over Aberdeen.

It initially looked as though Taylor was going to be good to play on, but instead Jonny Hayes was brought onto the pitch as a substitute.

It was unlucky for Taylor to have to go off as the Scotsman looked to have a promising start as his replacement Hayes looked a bit flustered at times and failed to make the final deliveries.

Taylor has been instrumental in our now nine-game winning run since returning from the winter break.

The former Kilmarnock star has started six of them and has made the left-back spot his own.

Signed in the summer from the Ayrshire side, Taylor hasn’t yet had the chance to kick on and be the number one at Celtic.

With Boli Bolingoli being given the spot during the first half of the season, this is supposed to be Taylor’s time to shine.

We hope Lennon was correct and Greg makes a very fast recovery as the Bhoys are still playing in three competitions and could use as much first teams players available as possible.
