During the match, Taylor’s performance, in particular, caught the attention of a number of Celtic fans.

So much so that many Hoops supporters couldn’t help but share their exact thoughts and feelings on the defender and his display on the pitch.

So, what did these Celtic fans have to say about Taylor’s performance in the first half against Jablonec? 

“Greg Taylor has been outstanding tonight”

“Don’t want to jinx him but Greg Taylor’s been superb at LB tonight.”

@Clarrknulp

“Credit where it’s due – Greg Taylor very good for the goal.”

@jhnmcgnly

“Greg Taylor has been outstanding the night”

@IIIRFIII

Ange clearly switched Greg Taylor with Philip Lahm. What a performance. I was on the Ange bus early doors but this has been sensational stuff with a squad still full of last year’s dreck. #CelticFC

“Taylor’s best performance in a Celtic jersey, excellent tonight”

Looking at these tweets from this group of Celtic fans, it’s clear to see that they were over the moon with what they saw from Taylor during the second leg against Jablonec. 

Did Greg Taylor have a good game against Jablonec?

Given how The Herald gave Taylor an overall match rating of 8/10 and said that he was “solid in defence and tireless going forward,” it’s easy to see why these Celtic fans were so happy with his performance. 

Moving forward, everyone associated with Celtic will undoubtedly be hoping that the defender can put in a similar sort of performance throughout the rest of the season on a consistent basis as he did in this match, and if he does, he could well be seen as one of the club’s most important players by the end of it.
