Celtic ace David Turnbull set to miss Rangers clash in February

Celtic attacker David Turnbull will be ruled out for two months, including February’s Old Firm clash v Rangers, according to the Scottish Sun.

Turnbull picked up a hamstring injury on December 19 and he is not expected to be back for the Gers clash.

This will be a massive boost for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men as the 22-year-old attacker has scored five and assisted four in 18 league games this season.

Good news

One of the major reasons why Celtic wanted the winter break to be brought forward was due to their injury woes.

The game against Rangers was scheduled to be in January with a number of their players set to miss it.

Their hopes were pinned behind having most of their names back for the rescheduled fixture, but they’ve been handed another blow in the form of Turnbull’s absence.

This is ideal news for Gers who need to ensure that they take advantage of this break.

They’ve looked leggy in a few games and it’s essential they take some time off before returning to low-intensity training.

Celtic are there for the taking and three points at Parkhead could make Gers feel like they’ve already got one hand on the title.

However, they must not take their eyes off the prize and keep hustling and striving to get better as there still are levels that these players can attain.

GvB is the right man to ensure that happens and we cannot wait to see how things transpire once football is back.
