Michael Stewart has suggested in The Scottish Sun that Celtic manager Neil Lennon should make more use of David Turnbull.

The former Manchester United and Hibernian forward, who now works as a pundit for BBC Sport, believes that Scott Brown needs to be managed better and cannot all the matches.

Stewart has suggested that Turnbull can play in the deeper role in midfield that Brown has operated in so well for years.

The Scotsman wrote in The Scottish Sun: “Callum McGregor, Nir Bitton, Olivier Ntcham and Ismaila Soro could all play that deeper role if Lennon needed them to.

“Then you have David Turnbull, who’s waiting patiently for a decent run in the Celtic team after his £3.25million move.

“Brown playing 90 minutes three times a week while other midfielders sit on the bench isn’t helping anyone.

“The likes of Turnbull need space and time to develop and you can see him stepping in and really blossoming.”

David Turnbull’s Celtic spell so far

Turnbull joined Celtic from Scottish Premiership rivals Motherwell in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by The Daily Record to be worth £3 million.

The Scotland Under-21 international scored one goal in five Scottish Premiership appearances for Motherwell this season before his move to the Hoops, according to WhoScored.

The 21-year-old has made one start and four substitute appearances in the league for the Bhoys this campaign, providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.

Playing regularly for Celtic

Turnbull was a regular during his time at Motherwell, and the midfielder knows what it takes to succeed in the Scottish Premiership.

It would make sense for Celtic boss Lennon to give the youngster a run in the team and allow him to grow and develop.
