Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to heap praise on David Turnbull, following Sunday’s 3-0 win over Hibernian.

The 21-year-old – who recently signed from Motherwell in a deal worth £3 million – made his debut after coming on for Ryan Christie at half-time.

Turnbull performed brilliantly in his 45-minute cameo, making an immediate impression on Celtic supporters who were presumably eager to see what he could do.

According to WhoScored, he registered four key passes which was more than any other player on the pitch managed.

One of those led to Mohamed Elyounoussi’s goal, while Turnbull also had two shots himself with one on target.

He definitely made a great first impression.

Celtic’s No.14 also completed three successful crosses – more than any Hoops player managed – while he ended the game with an impressive 91.8% pass success rate.

There must’ve been plenty of excitement surrounding the midfielder before a ball had even been kicked, seeing as Neil Lennon had been pursuing his services since last summer.

A deal was nearly all wrapped up for Turnbull, but he failed his medical and the transfer collapsed as The Daily Record reported.

The Bhoys have now finally got their man, and what a player he appears to be.

Let’s see what the Celtic fans on Twitter have been saying about him…
