Turnbull, who was set to be unveiled by the Parkhead club, was discovered during the medical to be carrying a knee injury which could sideline him for as long as six months [The Scottish Sun].

January is the earliest that the Hoops can go back for the teenage sensation - and the player himself might fancy that.
