David Turnbull showcased his undeniable talent with a stunning goal that breathed life into Celtic’s game against St Mirren, reminding everyone of his worth.

The Celtic star returned triumphantly to Brendan Rodgers’ squad, marking his first appearance since September 16, by nullifying Conor McMenamin’s initial goal for the Saints. But rather than basking in the glory of his cracker of a goal in front of the Celtic faithful, Turnbull chose a symbolic gesture. He placed his fingers in his ears, perhaps indicating he was blocking out his doubters who were in the stands.

Turnbull, at 24, maintained a stoic expression during the goal celebration. The Parkhead crowd showered him with appreciation when he made way for matchwinner Oh Heyong-gyu later in the game.

After facing challenges in establishing himself consistently under Ange Postecoglou, the Scottish international seemed to find favour with Rodgers at the start of the season. His stellar performance against Ross County was a testament to that. However, consistency as well as game time has alluded him since.

With his contract ending next summer, there’s speculation about Turnbull’s next move. While he might be contemplating his future away from the Scottish champions, it’s evident that he still has a lot to offer, whether at Celtic or elsewhere.
