82 passes, 5 long balls: £14,000-a-week Celtic player steals the show during 3-0 win

Celtic thrashed Dundee United this afternoon and in David Turnbull, they had a player who was bang in form.

He scored the second goal during a 3-0 victory with Tom Rogic and Liam Scales firing the other two goals.

It was the performance of Turnbull that caught the eye though, with the former Motherwell man taking his tally to eight goals and six assists from 30 appearances this season.

His goal was a real beauty and the 22-year-old was impressive throughout the clash.

Turnbull is proving to be a really decent signing for Celtic after a slow start to life at the club last season.

He is starring in a midfield role under Ange Postecoglou and supporters are impressed with his recent performances.

Some statistics help to deliver a verdict on just how impressive Turnbull was during Celtic’s comfortable win today.

As per Who Scored, Turnbull made 82 passes with a success rate of 90% and also completed three out of five long balls.

Not only that but he made seven key passes during the contest with his creativity on point for the Hoops.

It was his goal that really put the stamp on a dominant performance and he’s really showing some great form.

Exciting: Turnbull will get even better for Celtic

Turnbull simply oozes class and as a very elegant footballer still a youngster, the future looks really bright for Celtic.

Some eyebrows were raised when he was added to the ranks from Motherwell but he’s now starting to showcase exactly why he was signed.

The £14,000-a-week Turnbull has really impressed Postecoglou since he checked in during the summer and he’s starting to see the midfielder at his very best.

Celtic will have hopes of regaining their title from Rangers this season. With Turnbull in this sort of form, they have every chance.
