Celtic fans are worried that the club won't pay the money for David Turnbull
Celtic fans seem worried that the club may be about to repeat an old mistake this summer. The club are said to be interested in Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull. The Daily Mail reports that we’re eyeing up a £1.2million swoop for the 19-year-old.
The Lanarkshire side are said to value the 16 goal midfielder at more than double that value.
An old wound
Celtic have been known to penny-pinch in the past. The club spent weeks in protracted negotiations with Hibernian over John McGinn last summer. We failed to pay the money required and in the end the Scotland cap moved to Aston Villa.
The scarring of that move is still there to see in these Celtic fans. They certainly don’t want to see a repeat this season.
Embarrassing if Celtic only bid £1.2m for turnbull. Learned nothing from the Mcginn shambles…

So whos everyones must have signing for the coming season? 🍀 Turnbull for me needs to be signed quickly before a mcginn moment strikes again.

Most Hoops fans just want the club to press on with their dealings and get Turnbull to the club.
Model for this Davie Turnbull deal to mirror the John McGinn saga, surely there was a lesson learned there

However, not all Celtic fans would be fully behind the signing of the midfielder.
In all seriousness,has anyone even noticed Turnbull when playing against us? Never stood out for me,i remember being impressed with kamara when playing against dundee. Now celtic fans saying turnbull will be mcginn mark 2 etc.

It seems imperative that the club try to sign Turnbull this summer. We can’t afford to mess around like we did last year. The McGinn saga had a profound effect on our European qualifiers and may have been one of the reasons why we didn’t make the Champions League.
The club must look to do their business early and give backing to Neil Lennon.
