It took a while, but Celtic midfielder David Turnbull has made a terrific start to life at the club.
With his blistering performances over December, Turnbull has quickly become a fan favourite at Paradise.
He’s had to overcome the disappointment of an initial transfer being called off. Then, he contracted Covid-19 (Daily Record).
However, it was announced today that Turnbull has won the Premiership Player of the Month title for December. The 21-year-old has scored 3 goals and set up 2 (WhoScored?). His blistering form contributed to a turnaround of Celtic’s form last month.
Alongside Ismaila Soro, Turnbull has proved a very popular figure in the Green and White. In Lennon’s diamond formation, the Celtic midfield has looked rejuvenated, with both aforementioned youngsters bringing energy to the middle of the park.

Celtic fans react to Turnbull news
Fans were, as ever, quick to respond to the good news about Celtic midfielder David Turnbull.
Still, there’s a sense of disappointment that Turnbull couldn’t get going earlier for the Bhoys. There were also shouts for Ivorian star Ismaila Soro to win the SPFL’s monthly honours.
First of many. Terrific talent

If NL thinks of taking any credit, had he played him, Turnbull would also have been player of the month, September, October and November.
