Kilmarnock defender Greg Taylor says he happy to be linked with a move to Celtic because it means he is doing his job well at Rugby Park.

Killie boss Angelo Alessio has not yet received any bids for the defender but there is still time north of the border before the summer transfer window closes. Scottish Premiership champions Celtic are believed to be interested in bringing the player to Parkhead but Taylor says for the moment he can only concentrate on what he can control with his football for Killie.

He said: “I’m contracted to Kilmarnock so I’ve just got to keep doing what I can. If that’s enough to impress other teams that can only be a positive. “I’ve not had to speak to the manager about it yet because there’s not been a bid come in.

“You don’t really have any choice, you’ve got to do your job on a Saturday. “If you’re not doing that the suitors and talk about moves will quickly go away. So it’s important to get the head down and just work hard.”

Meanwhile, holders Celtic will host second-tier Partick Thistle in the quarter-finals of the Scottish League Cup. The Hoops managed to battle past Dunfermline on Saturday with a 2-1 extra-time victory to book their place in the last eight of the competition.

The ties will be played on September 24-26. Celtic are next in action on Thursday when they face Swedish outfit AIK in the Europa League Qualifying play-offs. The Hoops are 1.58 to win, 4.60 to lose and 3.70 to draw the first leg in Glasgow.
