The Lanarkshire based official decided to book Turnbull, in the final minutes of stoppage time Leigh Griffiths headed an equaliser for Celtic to earn a point.
It was the sort of incident seen in every match and very very rarely resulting in a red card. Most of the time a player will get booked, sometimes no action will be taken. On January 2 early in the Derby match at Ibrox Alfredo Morelos snapped at the heel of Jeremie Frimpong without any card being issued.
Celtic should have had full points but just before half time an assistant referee decided to flag for offside when Odsonne Edouard put the ball in the net. The striker was clearly onside with the assistant referee having the six yard line to help with his decision.
Ignoring that issue, in this morning’s Daily Record Mark Pirrie got the Turnbull campaign underway with
Celtic midfielder David Turnbull could be handed an SFA ban after a swipe at Aberdeen star Dylan McGeouch.
Leigh Griffiths came off the bench to rescue the Hoops with seconds left to salvage a point at Aberdeen and cancel out Lewis Ferguson’s opener.
However, that wasn’t the full story as Turnbull was shown a yellow for a fiery clash with McGeouch in the closing stages of the game.
Turnbull was penalised for a foul on McGeouch and responded by upending him in front of Collum, who chose to book the 21-year-old.
Despite being carded for the flashpoint the midfielder could still face action, as proven by Alfredo Morelos’ SFA charge earlier this season for a tussle with Dundee United’s Mark Connolly.
A retrospective red card would suspend Turnbull for Celtic’s next match- at Ibrox on May 2. The SFA have still to announce the outcome of the appeal on April 20 from five Ibrox players against four match suspensions relating to Fixed Penalties issued by Police Scotland on February 14.
