Celtic star is David Turnbull close to making return to training, The Scotsman’s Andrew Smith reports.
The Lowdown: Turnbull and Furuhashi’s absence
Ange Postecoglou has been without both Turnbull and Kyogo Furuhashi since the winter break due to respective hamstring issues.
They have established a three-point lead over Rangers, with journalist Mark Guidi believing Furuhashi could be back for the trip to Ibrox at the beginning of April. Even more positive injury news has now emerged regarding Turnbull, who could actually make a return before his attacking teammate.
The Latest: Nearing return
Smith relayed comments from Postecoglou in a story for The Scotsman on Thursday afternoon.
The manager revealed that Turnbull, all being well, will train with the team next week after the game with Dundee United and refused to rule the Scot out of the clash with Ross County next Saturday.
The Verdict: Huge news
So, having him back fit before the month is out would be a major boost as the Hoops enter the crunch stage of the season.
You’d expect the attacking midfielder will be around for the Glasgow Derby at the beginning of April, and possibly before going off Postecoglou’s update.
