Celtic midfielder David Turnbull has said the Hoops have done well to keep their Premiership title challenge on track following their difficulties in the Champions League.
With the exception of the defeat to St Mirren, the Scottish champions have won every match off the back of a defeat in Europe and Turnbull has commended the team’s resilience:
“It was tough to take in some of the midweek [Champions League] games. We performed well I think, but going into the weekend, we took it game by game and didn’t let it affect us. It’s about not getting too down and continuing our run.”
Turnbull, himself, has had to be patient for his opportunities this season, having started only five of the club’s fourteen league matches so far, but he has still been contributing.
The 23-year-old picked up an assist for Daizen Maeda’s goal in the 2-1 win over Motherwell midweek, which takes his goal contributions for the campaign up to six.
Celtic face Ross County at home on Saturday afternoon, which will be their last fixture before the World Cup. Ange Postecoglou’s side will be keen to secure another victory to maintain their seven-point gap over Rangers at the top of the table.
