Michael Stewart believes that David Turnbull is undroppable as Celtic try to get their season underway.

A grim run of two wins in 12 matches wasn’t extended as Neil Lennon’s new-look side refused to take it on the chin to inflict a 3-2 defeat on Lille.

At the sixth and final attempt the hoops won in the Europa League with one player contributing far more than anyone else.

Under the title Undroppable, the BBC website reports Stewart saying:

David Turnbull was a ready made player for Celtic that’s why I’m surprised it’s taken this long for him to get an opportunity. He’s got to start at the weekend.

The former Motherwell man sent in the corner for Chris Jullien’s 22nd minute opener then scored the 75th minute winner as Celtic restored some pride and equally importantly hope.

Throughout the match Turnbull was sharp and instinctive, he knew where to be positioned and the passes to punish opponents that are neck and neck with Paris Saint Germain for the French title.

Celtic’s season is hanging by a thread, if they drop any points in the SPFL before January 2 the title is likely to be out of reach but with Turnbull impressing there is hope going forward and a Scottish Cup Final just 10 days away.
