Greg Taylor has signed a new contract with Celtic, tying him to the club until the summer of 2025.

The left-back has missed recent matches after surgery on a shoulder injury but has held talks over a new deal, leading to him committing his long-term future to the club.

The Scotland international joined Celtic from Kilmarnock in 2019 and has made 60 appearances for the club so far.

“It’s a nice day for myself and my family,” Taylor told Celtic TV.

“I was desperate to extend my contract with the club, I’ve loved my two years since I’ve been here and hopefully I can continue that now.

“I enjoyed it certainly at the start of the season and had a good two or three months under the new manager and loved it. I really enjoy his way of playing and I feel it suits my game, coming inside.

“It’s definitely something I’ve enjoyed and something I can’t wait to get back out and be a part of.

“It’s just nice that the manager rewards you for what he believes you’ve done previously and it’s hopefully a relationship we can continue in the not-too-distant future.”

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou said he believes Taylor will go on to become an important player in his new-look team.

“I am delighted that Greg has extended his contract with the club,” Postecoglou said. “He has had an excellent start to the season and has made a really valuable contribution to the team.  

“Unfortunately he has suffered the injury in recent weeks, but our focus and his, is now to get him back in the squad as soon as possible, have him pick up where he left off and playing at that same high level.
“I am really pleased he has committed his future to Celtic and I am sure he will be an important player for us over the next few years.”
