Lennon calls out SFA ‘shambles’ after Turnbull returns positive test

NEIL LENNON has called out The SFA after David Turnbull returned from international duty, trained with his Celtic teammates and then returned a positive test. Steve Clarke quipped that the Scottish bubble was as safe as Celtic’s last month after Ryan Christie was caught up in an isolation order. But now, the news that eleven Scotland U21 players would be forced to isolate following three positive cases, questions have been asked of how this has been allowed to happen.

Turnbull was revealed earlier today as being one of the positive cases, which means he will have to isolate for ten days and now Lennon has labelled it a shambles.

Lennon has scarcely used Turnbull and in practical terms it is unlikely that Turnbull will be too much of a miss. What Lennon is likely annoyed at is perhaps the fact that a positive case within the bubble could wreak havoc with Celtic’s season. Turnbull was pictured training but Celtic will have followed their procedure and maintained the protocols meaning that no other players have been implicated in the latest case.

There have been a couple of COVID-19 issues already this season and Lennon is rightfully dismayed at what has been allowed to go on. Fortunately, there will not be another international break until March meaning that the clubs can keep a watchful eye on their players over the next few months and hopefully there will be no more disruption.
