Celtic: David Turnbull out for two months

Celtic: David Turnbull out for two months -Celtic

Celtic star David Turnbull looks set to be sidelined for at least two months with a hamstring issue, according to The Scotsman’s Andrew Smith.

The Lowdown: Ange’s injury woes

Ange Postecoglou has had to deal with multiple injury problems in his first season in charge at Parkhead.

In recent weeks, he’s had a shortage of attacking options, with the likes of Giorgos Giakoumakis, Albian Ajeti, Kyogo Furuhashi, Jota, James Forrest and Karamoko Dembele all missing.

Turnbull, who Postecoglou called ‘outstanding’, even filled in at centre-forward earlier this month, but he hobbled off with a muscular problem in Celtic’s League Cup final triumph against Hibernian and hasn’t been seen since.

The Latest: 10 games…

Smith shared an update on Turnbull’s situation in a story for The Scotsman on Monday evening.

He claimed that Turnbull would be out for a minimum of two months, which would make him unavailable for the Glasgow derby with Rangers on February 2 and the Conference League matches against Bodo/Glimt.

A two-month timeframe from the story on December 27 could see him miss a total of 11 first-team fixtures up until the end of February.

The Verdict: Will it ever end?

The winter break appears to have come at the right time for the Hoops, who were seemingly suffering fresh injuries every week.

Hopefully, the break will give Postecoglou time to get a number of players back from injury, but, unfortunately, Turnbull won’t be one of those.

He’s been an ever-present figure in midfield this season, making 34 appearances in all competitions. His absence should present a chance to another player, though, and who knows, that could be a January signing, with midfielders Reo Hatate and Yosuke Ideguchi both linked with moves.
