GREG TAYLOR is likely to make his third successive Celtic appearance in tonight’s Premiership encounter with Hamilton Accies at Parkhead.
The Scotland international left-back, a £2.25million arrival from Kilmarnock on transfer deadline day, has had to be patient to make the breakthrough at the champions.
However, after missing 10 games following his switch from Rugby Park, he finally made his debut in the 2-0 victory over St Mirren in Glasgow on October 30.
The reliable defender came in for the injured double-act of Boli Bolingoli and Jonny Hayes in the 3-1 Europa League Group E triumph over Rennes last Thursday and turned out again in the 4-1 win over Ross County in Dingwall at the weekend.
Now he is poised for his personal hat-trick against Brian Rice’s Accies in front of the Hoops fans tonight.
French midfielder Olivier Ntcham, who missed the romp in the Highlands with a knock, is also standing by to make a start.
Odsonne Edouard, Mohamed Elyounoussi, Bolingoli and Hayes all trained yesterday along with striker Vakoun Bayo, but none will play against the Lanarkshire outfit the champions beat 1-0 with a quickfire James Forrest strike earlier in the campaign.
Provisional squad : Forster, Frimpong, Bauer, Taylor, Ajer, Jullien, Rogic, Bitton, Brown, McGregor, Ntcham, Forrest, Johnston, Griffiths, Christie, Morgan, Sinclair and Gordon.
