GREG TAYLOR joined boss Ange Postecoglou is praising Celtic fans for their “unbelievable” support, despite setbacks in the Champions League campaign.

The Hoops were applauded off the pitch following their 3-0 loss to Real Madrid at a packed Parkhead on the opening day of Group F adventure two months ago.

The followers are in tune what the manager and the players are attempting to achieve and they have demonstrated that commitment to the team even in the fall-out of disappointing, frustrating results.

CONSOLATION…Filipe Jota celebrates after his superb free-kick strike against Real Madrid.

Once again, they were united in their backing for their favourites in the Bernabeu in midweek even though they had just witness the team walloped 5-1 by the reigning European champions.

Left-back Taylor said: “The fans have been unbelievable throughout this whole campaign.

“They have followed us everywhere, they have backed us, they have clapped us off after we got beat 5-1. That is hard for them to take, they deserve more, of course they do.

“But they are absolutely unbelievable and every one of us in that changing room is so grateful for their support. It is a fanbase like no other.”

ON THE UP…Greg Taylor is hoisted high by Sead Haksabanovic after his goal in the 3-0 win over Livingston.

Taylor, speaking to the Daily Record, added: “It was good for the fans to get something that they deserved when Jota scored.

“I wish it had been a more critical point in the game, but it was a real moment of quality.

“We now have got three games to go to the break and the first one is Dundee United. So we will rest, recover and be ready to put on a performance at home for the fans.”

Taylor was involved in the 9-0 mauling of that Tannadice side earlier in the season, a landlside defeat that cost Jack Ross his job 48 hours later. Liam Fox will be in the Parkhead dug-out tomorrow afternoon.

The rejuvenated defender could even go looking for another goal to add to the double he has claimed in recent weeks with the winner in the seven-goal thriller against Hearts at Tynecastle and the second in the 3-0 victory at Livingston on Sunday.

Another strike from Taylor, who had gone over three years without a league goal for the Hoops, would certainly get the Celtic fans cheering again.
