CELTIC walked away from the David Turnbull deal on Tuesday evening after losing patience with the player and his agent.
The club gave Turnbull over the weekend and Monday to accept an offer to join Celtic but he held out for more money and now will likely get what he’s after at Norwich with the Canaries having a bid accepted for the 19-year-old.
Resident negative BBC Pundit Tom English has tried to stick the boot into Celtic over the deal, even though the club did everything right.
English points out Celtic have missed out on three Scottish targets and tries to lump them together.
Dramatic end to the David Turnbull saga. Motherwell have done really well, the player has done really well. Celtic? They’ve now bid for and failed to get McGinn, McKenna and Turnbull. Not a good look

In reality, which is where Tom rarely visits, they were all very different transfers. Celtic messed up the McGinn deal by playing a game of chicken with Hibs, they made a bid for Scott McKenna and Aberdeen wanted over £9m for him (no thanks) and Turnbull deal we offered what the club wanted, offered the player a good deal and he’s simply wanting to take the money up front at Norwich.
