Celtic defender Greg Taylor believes that the talk of new signings will only increase the competition within the squad. Taylor recently returned from a lengthy absence after surgery on his left shoulder. Celtic are considering turning to the Japanese market after the huge success of the signing of Kyogo Furuhashi. Daizen Maeda, Reo Hatate, and Yosuke Ideguchi have been shortlisted by manager Ange Postecogou.
“There’s always going to be competition in every place, given the size of this club,” Celtic defender Greg Taylor said. “It’s normal. Every player needs to relish it and hopefully it makes the squad stronger. We’ve got so many games there’s no time to check what is being said. We’ll be linked with a number of players. Some will be true, some will be false. It’s part and parcel of the game.”
“We do look forward to having extra reinforcements and it’s a strong squad as it is. There’s a lot of boys pushing to play already in the building. If we add to that it’ll be more competitive and it can only improve us.” he added. “Competition drives the standard through the roof. Even if it’s in training, the manager is a big believer in that. Even for the boys who aren’t playing, the training has to be right throughout the week. It keeps the levels high for the game on a Saturday. I love playing for the club. There’s pressure every week but the type I enjoy. I was desperate to be back out there. For the 11 weeks I was out it was tough to watch.”
