The David Turnbull transfer saga has come to an end for this window and it hasn’t gone down well with Celtic fans.

Turnbull will need surgery on a knee issue that was detected for the first time during his Celtic medical and after the club and Motherwell failed to agree on revised terms the deal is off the table and the 19-year-old will stay at his hometown club for the foreseeable future much to the dismay of Celtic fans.

You have to feel sorry for the teenager who has seen his life turned upside down in the last month: he was expecting to earn his big move to Celtic where he’d compete for trophies and play in European football only to be told that the deal would be off and that he’d miss the rest of the year with a serious knee injury. Turnbull has been offered a new deal by his club Motherwell that will include a buy-out clause of £3.25 million and will allow him to leave when he returns to full fitness but you can’t help feel for the 15 goal starlet.

These Celtic fans are annoyed the deal couldn’t go through at the final hurdle after what had been an intriguing saga that had seemingly lasted forever but are still hopeful Turnbull will make a full recovery and join them at Celtic Park.
