Left-back Greg Taylor has committed his future to Celtic on a new contract which runs until the summer of 2025.

The Scotland international, whose new deal was confirmed on his 24th birthday, has been at Celtic Park since 2019 when he made the move from Scottish Premiership rivals Kilmarnock.

"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."

Taylor had been a regular member of Ange Postecoglou's squad earlier this season but has been out of action for a couple of months after suffering a shoulder injury.
