Charlie Adam fancies Lyle Taylor to make the move to Celtic this summer

Former Scotland midfielder Charlie Adam has said that he won’t be surprised if one of Celtic or Rangers make the move to sign Lyle Taylor. The 30-year-old’s current deal with Charlton Athletic expires on June 30 and he has no intention of extending his stay with the Addicks despite the delayed end to the season because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Addicks boss Lee Bowyer has already confirmed that Taylor won’t play any part for the club when the campaign resumes later this month and the marksman appears set for an exit under controversial circumstances. Still, there appears plenty of interest in his services and Adam, speaking to TalkSPORT, said that he won’t be surprised if one of Rangers or Celtic come forward to land his signature.

He’s a good player and it wouldn’t surprise me, just throwing it out there, if Rangers or Celtic try and take him because he’s out of contract. He’ll have a few options in the Championship too, and maybe a Premier League club would even take him because of his goalscoring record over the last few years. He’s in a good position, and that’s what his agent will be saying to him,” He told.

Taylor has bagged 37 goals from just 65 appearances for the Addicks and out of those, 11 have come during the current league campaign from just 22 outings. That has given the club a chance of beating the drop and they are currently only two points adrift of safety. With his reluctance to play, the Addicks are definitely facing a blow for the final nine games of the campaign and it remains to be seen whether they can battle their way out of the relegation zone. The capital outfit have been out of the bottom three for almost the entire season, barring one week before the coronavirus shutdown.
