Celtic midfielder David Turnbull could be set to miss up to two months of action, ruling him out of the Glasgow Derby fixture in February, as well as the Hoops European two-legged tie against Bod/Glimt.

The 22-year old was forced off during this months Premier Sports cup victory over Hibernian at Hampden Park, with Ange Postecoglou putting the hamstring injury down to fatigue.

According to a report from the Scotsman, the injury will keep Turnbull out for an extended period of time, of around up to two months which will lead to the midfielder missing some key fixtures after the winter break.

Turnbull has been a key feature for Ange Postecoglou and was the only player to have featured in all 34 competitive games under 56-year old up until the League Cup final.

The slight positive for Postecoglou will be that he can bring in additions to his squad in the January window, with the midfield looking like a critical area of his focus – rumours have suggested that both Reo Hatate and Yosuke Ideguchi could be close to completing a move.

However, he will still be without Turnbull for a key run of fixtures in January and February, which sees the Hoops travel to the likes of Pittodrie, Tynecastle and Easter Road.
