Whilst there is no official suggestion Rangers are interested; Taylor would provide a real solution. Energetic, physical and very comfortable on the ball, he’d the perfect folly to James Tavernier.
And what’s more, he’s reportedly about to get his first Scotland call-up under Steve Clarke.
The reported call-up will come as no surprise to new Gers signing and former Killie man Jordan Jones. The Northern Irishman tipped Taylor for the call as soon as Clarke joined the national team.
but should Rangers theoretically want to move for the player, the club would likely have to fork out. How much is hard to say, but Taylor signed a three-year deal last year.
That means the talented 21-year-old has two years remaining at Rugby Park. Going by the current market, we’re likely talking between one and two million. Taylor is rated at £600k by Transfermarkt.
Taylor is arguably Killie’s most valuable asset and the club won’t be prepared to let him go easily.
Is he worth a considerable outlay for Rangers? Well, when you consider how influential Taylor has been for Kilmarnock against Borna Barisic’s poor form for Rangers, maybe.
Taylor, for example, made BT Sport’s Team of the Season. Barisic probably wasn’t even mentioned.
