GOUROCK footballer Greg Taylor last night completed a dramatic deadline day move to Scottish champions Celtic.

The left-back joined the Parkhead club on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Kilmarnock

The former Clydeview Academy pupil arrived at Celtic Park to agree personal terms after training with the Scotland national team in Edinburgh ahead of Friday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Russia.

Taylor said: “Callum [McGregor], Ryan [Christie] and James [Forrest] are with the Scotland squad just now and they were asking me today what was happening. Now that it’s over the line I can’t wait to be part of this squad, and to say that I’m a Celtic player is a dream come true.

“As a footballer, you want to win games and here the demand is to win every game, but I’m looking forward to that pressure. Hopefully, it will bring the best out in me, and it really is a massive honour to have signed for this club.

“It’s been a whirlwind of a day but I’m over the moon to be here and thankfully that’s it over the line.

“As soon as I knew of Celtic’s interest, I was desperate to come, so it’s been a great day.

“It’s massive club, everyone knows that, and I’m here to win trophies, it’s as simple as that and I can’t wait to hopefully be a part of it. I’m delighted to be a Celtic player, and I want to try and impress the fans and obviously the manager.

“A club this size wants to win trophies and they have done over the past few years, and now that I’m here, I want to help the team win more trophies.”
