Celtic fans applaud David Turnbull as Hoops draw with English side Bristol City

Celtic completed their third pre-season friendly under Ange Postecoglou but failed to make it three wins from three against Bristol City. After victories over Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday in Wales, Celtic were held to a stalemate. But Celtic fans did applaud David Turnbull.

Ahead of the upcoming Champions League qualifier against Danish side Fc Midtjylland – captained of course by Erik Sviatchenko – Celtic stepped up their preparation. But the Hoops failed to make it three out of three, and actually, came out of the game in worse shape than when they started.

What have Celtic fans said about Turnbull’s display against Bristol City?

That is because Mikey Johnstone limped off just before the half-hour mark, before Karamoko Dembele followed him on 36 minutes. Not the kind of preparation needed just before a Champions League qualifier. Time will tell if either player has sustained any long-term damage.

In a game of half chances, £3million (Sun) signing Turnbull impressed in the middle of the park – sitting in the 10 role ahead of Callum McGregor and Ismaila Soro. While the result was somewhat frustrating for Celtic, many were encouraged by Turnbull’s efforts. One fan compared him to “Broony”.
