David Turnbull eyeing a place in Steve Clarke’s Euro squad

David Turnbull has admitted that he is hoping he can continue to perform for Celtic and be rewarded with a place in Steve Clarke’s Euro 2020 team. The 21-year-old was named the SPFL Premiership POTM after an impressive breakthrough month. Turnbull made his breakthrough in the Europa League ‘dead rubber’ against Lille. Since then he and Ismaila Soro have given Celtic’s midfield a new lease of life and told the media conference ahead of today’s game with Hibs that he hopes he can make it into the Euro squad.

“It’s a while away but if I keep playing the way I’m playing then I’d love that to happen.

“It doesn’t come around often, especially major tournaments, it’s something any Scottish player should be looking forward to.

“However, I’m just focusing on playing well every week and will look forward to that if it comes.”

The midfielder was the subject of interest from Neil Lennon’s Celtic last year in what developed into a transfer saga. The player was even pictured in a Celtic top with Neil Lennon doing his interviews before a rare knee injury was found in the medical and forced to call the move off.

Nevertheless, Turnbull endeavoured to keep working in order to get fit again and he reaped the rewards as Celtic came in for him again. This time, there was no issues with the medical and the Scottish Champions sealed a deal bringing the Scotland U21 international from Motherwell to Paradise.
