Celtic have confirmed that David Turnbull was one of the three Scotland U21 players who tested positive for #COVID19.
He is obviously not in the squad for today’s match against Hibs and will be isolating for 10 days.

We will have to wait and see, as well as hold our breath in the hope that nobody else develops symptoms.
As always, we would like to make clear how bad this virus can be and the player’s health is at the forefront of our mind. We wish David a speedy recovery from the virus and hope to see him back in training when he’s ready.
