Video: “Finish on a High, We All Know It’s Been a Tough Season,” David Turnbull

David Turnbull also spoke to the Mainstream Media today ahead of the game against St Johnstone at Celtic Park tomorrow evening. Much of the conversation surrounded the door that appears to be opening for him to make a late push for a place in Steve Clarke’s Scotland squad.

However the conversation eventually did turn to the game tomorrow after the Celtic midfielder was asked about the Colts League and whether Celtic should sign Ali McCann from St Johnstone. “That’s not really got anything to do with me,” a bemused Turnbull answered, recalling the numerous battles he’s had with the St Johnstone player over the past few years at various levels.

“We want to go into the two games and finish on a high,” Turnbull stated, as the afterthought of tomorrow’s game got a mention.

“We all know it’s been a tough season but we’re looking forward to the last two games. We need to go out there and try to put on a good performance and take that into next season,” he added.

“As a team, we look to perform in every game. Whether anyone’s watching, we always try to impress and work hard for the team. They’ve been playing very well this season. They’ve got good results, have won one cup and are going for their second. It’s about playing to our strengths, going out there and trying to get the win.”

On a personal level this has been a breakthrough year for Turnbull after a frustrating period with a season out of the game followed by no early opportunities at Celtic. He certainly took his chance when it came along.

“People have seen what I can do and it’s about doing that consistently,” he said. “I feel as if I’ve brought that into my game. I feel great going into next season after this year. This season was about getting back fully fit after a year out, creating chances and scoring as many goals as I can. I’ll be looking to do that even more next season.

“I want to help get us back up there where we belong. I’ll try my best and hopefully next season we can go on and do big things.”
