Paradise Found – Brendan Rodgers could transform David Turnbull’s Celtic story

David Turnbull, what next?

A few Celtic players will be under close scrutiny by new boss Brendan Rodgers and one of them is midfielder David Turnbull. The 24 year old is in the last year of his contract and will be doing his upmost to impress the Irishman.

David was of course signed for £3.5 million from Motherwell back in 2020 by Neil Lennon. David while not being spectacular has been steady enough scoring 24 goals and providing 23 assists in 115 appearances, winning six honours. That’s very impressive stats.

David wasn’t what you would say a regular starter especially under Ange Postecoglou, although an injury picked up in the League Cup final win over Hibs in 2021 hampered his progress in the first team under the Aussie.

Critics would say he wasn’t mobile enough to fit into the Aussies ‘don’t stop’ motto, and to be fair there was a hint of truth in that, but David is a talented player and his great eye for a pass and his ability to find the net make him a valuable player and an asset to any side.

The question is, will Brendan see a place for him in his side going forward? both the manager and the player will find out the answer to that soon enough as with only one year left on his contract, it’s important for both club and player to know where David’s future lies.
