Celtic star Greg Taylor criticised by Michael Stewart for St Mirren defending

Celtic star Greg Taylor has been criticised for his defending against St Mirren by pundit Michael Stewart.

The Scotland international was involved in an on-field dispute with team-mate Liam Scales after Conor McMenamin headed the visitors in front.

Brendan Rodgers' side came back to win the fixture 2-1 at Parkhead but Stewart feels that Taylor has to be stronger defensively.

Speaking on Sportscene, he said: "You see Nat Phillips get dragged right out from the centre of defence.

"It’s a great ball in by Kiltie and it causes real problems. McMenamin is all on his own.

“You see Greg Taylor. He isn’t happy. But it’s actually his fault. You see Scales looking over his shoulders. He sees that Taylor has McMenamin.

“But, as soon as Scales turns and faces Olusanya. Taylor drifts away to the back post. The player at the back post is the least dangerous, at that point.

"And McMenamin is free to get the header in. Taylor has to stick with McMenamin.”
