GREG TAYLOR is OUT of tomorrow’s Premiership encounter against Ross County at Parkhead.
The Scotland international left-back has been an ever-present this season, but injury will keep him on the sidelines for the visit of the Highlanders.
And Taylor could also be struggling for the two difficult back-to-back away league fixtures against Aberdeen at Pittodrie a week tomorrow and the match against Hibs at Easter Road four days later.
ON THE RUN…crocked Greg Taylor is poised to miss out for the first time this season.
Brendan Rodgers, speaking to the Daily Record, confirmed: “Greg will be out for a few weeks. Towards the game at the weekend he felt a slight strain in his calf.
“So, sadly, he’s out, which is a shame because he’s been excellent and very consistent over the course of the season so far.”
The injury will create a problem for the Hoops boss who may have to call in forgotten Bhoy Alexandro Bernabei who has hardly had a look-in during this campaign and was also overlooked from the manager’s Champions League squad.
Alternatively, Rodgers could switch Liam Scales from his middle-of-the-rearguard berth to cover the No.3 slot and bring in left-sided Gustaf Lagerbielke to the centre-back area.
Two-footed Maik Nawrocki could also move across if Cameron Carter-Vickers returns from the muscular problem that saw him limp off early in the second-half of the 3-0 win over Dundee at Dens Park on Boxing Day forcing him to sit out the 2-1 derby victory, the 3-0 success at St Mirren on January 2 and the 5-0 Scottish Cup romp against Buckie Thistle.
Skipper Callum McGrgeor, rested against the Highlanders, is expected to return to his usual midfield berth against the Dingwall outfit and new Bhoy Nicolas Kuhn, the £3million recruit from Rapid Vienna last week, is standing by to make his debut.
