Ryan Anthony Taylor (born August 19, 1984 in Liverpool, England) is an Under 21 International with England. Taylor, a defender, currently plays for Premiership outfit Wigan Athletic.

"The Latics" acquired his services on 13 July 2005 from Wirral based club Tranmere Rovers for an undisclosed fee, beating off competition from Everton and Norwich City. Taylor signed a four-year contract at the JJB Stadium, due to run until 2009.

Taylor scored his first goal in the Premiership with a cracker for Wigan against Newcastle United on February 25, 2007. From just outside the penalty area, Taylor let one of his specialist free kicks fly straight into the top corner with the returning Newcastle goalkeeper, Shay Given left stranded, after 40 minutes. Wigan went on to win the match.

Ryan Taylor had the worst year in his professional football career with injuries in 2006. He broke his fifth metatarsal in a FA Cup match against Leeds United and then, in his first outing back, he broke his leg in a reserve clash against Newcastle.

In late 2007, Taylor made a resurgence into the Wigan first team, providing several excellent performances under new manager Steve Bruce, including his second Premier League goal on December 26, 2007, with another free kick against Newcastle United.

He is the grandson of professional wrestler Tony St. Clair.
