Celtic midfielder David Turnbull has made a swift return to training after sustaining a knock in last week’s emphatic win over St Johnstone.
The 22-year old has not long made his return to matchday squads after missing several months of action due to a hamstring injury picked up at the end of December.
There were some fears that Turnbull may not be finding any luck whatsoever and could have been set for another spell on the sidelines after he walked off the pitch late on at Parkhead last weekend, not being able to continue thanks to another knock.
However, speaking to the media ahead of the Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers, Celtic boss provided an injury update, confirming that the Scotland internationalist had come through fine and was back training amongst the squad.

This news will come as a massive relief to both Postecoglou and the player himself.
After making such a good start to the season and becoming a key player in the side, another injury would have been a frustrating one to take for the midfielder at this point in the season.
But, he has now been cleared for involvement in this weekend’s semi-final and is likely to play his part in the final five league fixtures of the season.
With the options that Postecoglou now has in the midfielder area, it will come as a huge boost for the crucial final run-in.
