David Turnbull has been named as the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year after his debut campaign in the Hoops. The 21-year-old scored ten and assisted eight this year and has been rewarded as the campaign draws to a close.
The summer signing from Motherwell has been another player this season that has stood out after forcing his way into the first team. His flair, pace and ability to spot a pass have resulted in the midfielder being one of the first names on the Celtic team sheet.

Turnbull won both the Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards in the Celtic POTY awards last week. He will be hoping to add more consistency to his game when Eddie Howe (hopefully) is announced and the player can look forward to taking his game to another level under the Englishman.
It is likely that the youngster is harbouring hope of being called up to Steve Clarke’s Euro squad for Scotland. The award will likely be in Clarke’s mind when he makes his decision on who comprises the 26-man squad public on Wednesday.
Congrats to you, David. You have been a bright spark in an otherwise bleak season.
