Ghana’s Taylor Finally Set For Debut At Rangers

After waiting for his official clearance to become ‘an antelope,’ Ghanaian playmaker, Charles Taylor looks good to make his debut for Nigeria’s Enugu Rangers this weekend.
This will be a good chance for Enugu Rangers to unleash the experienced Ghanaian import as they try to boost their position on the log and return to Africa.
The experienced Ghanaian playmaker had been in the Rangers camp for sometime now without the necessary papers to do what he knows best. But with all the papers work now done, Taylor who has played for top sides like Accra Hearts of Oak, Kumasi Ashanti Kotoko and Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel becomes the first big name to play in the Nigerian League from a Ghanaian club.
Interestingly, Taylor is returning to familiar ground. Back in 2004, he scored against Rangers at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium during a CAF Confederations Cup Group Match that ended 2-1 in favour of Rangers.
Taylor was part of the Ghanaian 2004 Olympic football team that exited in the first round, having finished in third place in group B. He was a silver medalist with Ghana U-20 team at 2001 Africa Youth Championship, in Ethiopia.
 The former Kotoko and Hearts playmaker currently has forty one caps for the Ghana national football team, scoring nineteen goals.
Taylor was a member of the Black Stars at 2009 African Championship of Nations (CHAN) in Côte d’Ivoire.
Rangers are sixth on the log with 39 points from 26 matches.
