Tam McManus has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to Celtic’s statement regarding the current situation of Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull.

Celtic have announced on their official Twitter page that they have yet to reach an agreement with Turnbull regarding a move to Celtic Park in the summer transfer window.

The Glasgow giants have announced that they have reached an agreement with Scottish Premiership rivals Motherwell over the transfer of Turnbull this summer.

 

Celtic have also made an offer to the 19-year-old midfielder, but the Scotland Under-21 international midfielder’s agent has not accepted it.

Former Hibernian forward McManus, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport, has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the Hoops’ announcement regarding Turnbull, and has suggested that the Glasgow giants should have kept the situation private.

Turnbull is a very good and promising young midfielder, and there is no doubt that the teenager would be smart signing for Celtic this summer.

It will be interesting to see if the Hoops can come to an agreement with the midfielder’s agent.
