Greg Taylor Wins Plaudits from Plenty of Scotland Fans for Solid International Debut

Greg Taylor Wins Plaudits from Plenty of Scotland Fans for Solid International Debut

Scotland were comfortably beaten by Belgium in Brussels earlier tonight but Kilmarnock‘s full-back Greg Taylor was one of the few bright spots for Steve Clarke‘s side.

Two goals either side of half-time from Romelu Lukaku put the Belgians in the driving seat in the Euro 2020 qualifier, with a stunning strike from Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne sealing a routine 3-0 victory for the country currently ranked No.1 in the FIFA rankings.

The Scots couldn’t muster up much in the way of their own clear-cut chances, and were without captain and arguably their best player in Liverpool’s Andy Robertson, who suffered a slight hamstring injury in the weekend’s win over Cyprus.

With Celtic’s Kieran Tierney also out injured after undergoing a double hernia operation last week, Killie’s Greg Taylor was handed the daunting task of playing at left-back against some of the best wingers in world football – and his solid display has won some serious praise from onlooking Scotland supporters:

Of course, once Tierney and Robertson are fit again, it’s difficult to see where Taylor gets a game, but what did you think of his display?
