Former agent tips Celtic young star for glory

Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign was dismal, to say the least – and despite the obvious negatives in that Steve Clarke’s men finished bottom of the group, there were some brilliant positives for Celtic to take away – including the addition to the squad for David Turnbull.

Callum McGregor scored Scotland’s only goal of the tournament, whilst Greg Taylor, Ryan Christie and James Forrest were included yet again – signalling Celtic as the club with the most Scottish players at the tournament by some distance, marking a proud moment for the club.

Turnbull, 21, was included in the Scotland team for the first time in his career when Clarke announced his 26-man squad for their first tournament in 22 years – and although he didn’t play, the Wishaw born midfielder can take many positives from it, according to respected agent William Glavin.

Speaking to ThisIsFutbol, Glavin stated of the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year: “I’ve always liked David Turnbull from when I saw him play for the Motherwell reserves, and then he obviously progressed into the Motherwell first team. He’s got everything about him technically. He’s still got a lot to learn, I think.”

Having played a bit-part role for Celtic in the early stretches of his Parkhead career, Turnbull sprung to life over the festive period, taking a lead role in the side following the Dubaigate scandal – and not looking back since, featuring in the Scotland squad for the first time.

“Him going to Euro 2020, he obviously didn’t feature an awful lot, but just being around about the squad, training every day and things like that and being around the tournament, he’d have got a real lift from that, and a good bit of experience behind him.”

“So I’m pretty sure he’ll push on and as long as he stays fit, I think he’ll have a really good season for us this year.”
