Highly unlikely Taylor will start tomorrow and I doubt he will play for Killie again .According to what I have heard he was sounded out months ago if he would go to Septic .His family leanings might have proved a problem 

You’ve got no more idea about this than the rest of us.

This is how it always begins, player misses training. I hope things don't turn sour like you sometimes see in other leagues, players going awol, tbf very much doubt that will happen. None the less if Taylor does go and we get a tidy sum, good luck to the lad, deserves the move. 

I hope one day we are in a position to keep hold of our best players and not have to sell.

If this happens, which has looked very likely for some time and we have no option to recall Calum waters from st mirren then serious questions must be asked of the club. This is basic stuff. 

Lets be honest, even if we get 2 or 3 mil cash, it’s going to be difficult to source a replacement at this stage of the window.

what you mean to say you don't fancy Brophy at left back?

To be fair, if the Ham is up to it it shouldn't be too difficult to get a backup. 

Would have liked to see Waters given a chance. I wonder if Celtic had told us nothing was happening and have now panicked over the quality of their signings?

Agreed. 

Greg has been great for us and vice versa. 

I just hope he realises this and doesn't turn into a moon howling Green Brigade fan boy.

A sell on % included in any deal is vital if Taylor does go. Celtic have a decent track record of selling players on for a big profit and Taylor definitely has the potential for a big move to England in a few years.

Rendition of one greg Taylor today whether he's playing or not. Lad has been fantastic and has handled this situation publicly superb.

Goes with my best wishes and sure his career will continue to flourish,a

One Greg Taylor!!

If he nets us £3 million then the club are secure financially for the next 5-10 years. 

He's been a great servant who would leave with our best wishes.

If he does want to go he must understand we can't just let him go on the cheap. Celtic also need to play fair here and if they are charging 25 million for Tierney then 3 million for Taylor is a at least what he is worth. 

If Taylor kicks up and doesn't want to play(and of all the players who would do this I doubt it would be Greg) then we just sit him on the bench rather than accept a 1 million or a 2 million. Other bids will come from other teams. He is still contracted to us for a while.

He’s more than half the player Tierney is.  He’s the next Tierney so to speak.  I think, as usual, we’re drastically undervaluing our players.  The lad has been the most consistent performer in our league for the past 3 seasons and has never shown any sign of being injury prone.  He’s an international in a team where his main competitors for the position are Robertson and Tierney.  One of the main comments used to describe him is ‘he never gets done’.   If we don’t get at least £5-10 million for the lad and a fairly healthy sell on then we’ve been shafted.

£5m - £10m is crazy talk. There is not a chance a team is going to pay that kind of money for a left back from Kilmarnock and that’s just a fact.

Kilmarnock's Greg Taylor skipped training on Friday as he waits to see if Celtic can agree a fee with the Rugby Park club for his services. (Sun)

A guess he's not playing today then..best of luck to him

When players such as Taylor agree to extending their current contract it does two things. One it provides a player with a guaranteed income and secondly it protects the club from bidders who come in for the player. The club knew Taylor was a commodity and he thankfully extended his contract. Now there is a chance of him leaving, the club will be able to cash in and insert a compensation clause for future transfers. Taylor should have everyone’s best wishes.

Contrast Taylor, with O’Donnell who so far has exerted his right not to extend his contract, who will be free to negotiate a decent signing on fee for any new club, and Killie will receive nothing.

Unfortunately the reality is that if we get upwards of two million for Greg then the club will accept in today's climate we are a selling club and if he does go then I wish him all the best !

Trouble is, value isn't based on how much a player is worth, it's based on what someone is willing to pay. 

I don't disagree that he should be a fifth of whatever Tierney was - but no one will offer us that so it's not remotely useful. 

We couldn't afford to turn down 3 million. He could get a career ending injury next week and we'd get nothing. And there's no indication Championship clubs are going to match that or pay any more. 

It's no fair, but the reality is that 3 million would be a deal we couldn't turn down.

It would appear your expectations match your username. Not a chance Celtic will pay that for Taylor.

If he goes, he'll go with my best wishes to him in that he gets a lucrative deal and stays injury free. On a footballing side I hope he experiences zero success whatsoever. FTOF

And O’Donnell would be no less due our best wishes. 

He signed up to giving us three years’ service, which he is well on the way to completing. 

No more or less.

In that time, he has been capped and his stock has risen. Not enough, apparently, for another club to make an acceptable offer to buy out his contract but that is no fault of the player. 

Good luck to him too.
