SCOTLAND Under-20s hero Greg Taylor has been named the fourth-best player of the Toulon Tournament after helping Scot Gemmill’s side finish with a 3-0 victory against the Czech Republic on Saturday.

The Gourock teen enjoyed a memorable tournament and hit the headlines after a wonder strike against Brazil to help Scotland progress to the semi-finals, where they lost to eventual winners England.

England and Sheffield United starlet David Brooks was awarded the player of the tournament.

Left-back Taylor started on Saturday as the Scottish youngsters finished on a high by securing a third-place finish by beating the Czech Republic at Stade de Lattre-de-Tassigny in Aubagne.

Ryan Hardie opened the scoring shortly after the break with a stunning curling strike before Craig Wighton added a second midway through the second half and a late own goal by Denis Granecny made it 3-0.

Fellow Inverclyde youngster and Taylor’s Kilmarnock team-mate Adam Frizzell came on as a substitute in the second half. The result matches Scotland’s best-ever finish at the competition.

Manager Gemmill said: “I was delighted with how the players responded after a disappointing defeat to England in the semi-finals.

“They have finished third from 12 teams so it’s a great achievement and we are really pleased to finish the tournament on a high.

“I’m sure they will take a lot from this experience and hope they go back to their clubs in a positive frame of mind and ready for the new season.”
