Due to Greg Taylor’s injury, Brendan Rodgers is shorthanded as he searches for a replacement left back for weeks.
The Hoops have not succeeded in adding a left-back thus far, which has made the issue worse.
Greg Taylor’s calf injury will keep Celtic out of action for “a few weeks,” which will present Brendan Rodgers with a left-back dilemma.
With Alexandro Bernabei clearly out of the picture, the Hoops were already looking to challenge their unchallenged first pick with a new player in that position. Their only acquisition of the January window thus far is winger Nicolas Kuhn, but they haven’t been able to add any more.
Therefore, it would have been the last thing they would have wanted if Taylor had pulled up injured, but that is precisely what has happened.The 26-year-old Rodgers will miss the next few weeks of Celtic action due to a calf issue that he felt towards the end of the team’s victory over Buckie Thistle.
“Greg will be out for a few weeks,” the Northern Irishman declared. He felt a slight strain in his calf towards the weekend game.
“It is unfortunate that he is no longer with us, as he has shown remarkable and reliable play thus far this season.”
Although Bernabei has only made four appearances this season and hasn’t played since a runout against Hearts in mid-December, he could be a viable replacement.
While young Mitchel Frame has experienced first team action, Liam Scales may also switch from center back.
