David Turnbull is rapidly becoming a Celtic talisman

Celtic bounced back to winning ways after securing an emphatic victory over Kilmarnock last night. The Bhoys triumphed 4-0 thanks to goals from Odsonne Edouard (2), Albian Ajeti and skipper Scott Brown.

Neil Lennon opted for several changes in his starting lineup and they definitely paid off. For instance, Shane Duffy dropped to the bench in favour of 21-year-old Stephen Welsh, who put in an impressive performance at centre-back alongside Kristoffer Ajer.

Another man who is new to the Celtic first team this season, is summer signing David Turnbull, and he is rapidly becoming one of the Hoops’ biggest stars.

David Turnbull vs Kilmarnock

Once again, the 21-year-old proved exactly why he is a rare shining light in a turbulent season for the Bhoys. Turnbull assisted two of his side’s four goals, but also contributed an awful lot more than that as well.

No one came near the Celtic midfielder in terms of creativity, with FotMob revealing that his impressive five chances created were more than anyone else managed on the pitch. The £7,500 per week play-maker ran riot from the engine room against Kilmarnock, making three key passes and completing 100% of long balls and 50% of his attempted crosses.

The rest of his teammates combined for five key passes among themselves, whilst his total of two accurate crosses were as many as everyone else put together.

Who did Celtic face in their first match of 2020?

Turnbull also had two shots on target as he looked to get in on the score-sheet himself, and that desire to get in dangerous positions has been one of the key reasons behind why he has an impressive 11 goals contributions in his debut campaign for the club.

Nick Hammond may be under increasing pressure over his future at the club as head of football operations, but one thing is for sure, he pulled off a masterstroke by landing Turnbull from Motherwell last summer.

Meanwhile, this Celtic player surely impressed Lennon on Tuesday night…
