Michael Stewart highlighted the performance of David Turnbull as Celtic demolished St Mirren 6-0 to go to the top of the SPFL Premiership.
That status will be temporary but today’s performance and scoreline sent out a warning to the rest of the league that Celtic are a very different proposition to the lame side that they encountered last season.
David Turnbull with another very impressive performance and a hat-trick to boot. A Rolls Royce of a player who will love being aboard the Ange Postecoglou bandwagon as it continues to build up a head of steam. A couple of huge games away from home coming up next.

Once again the hoops hit six goals with the variety of their play overwhelming the side from Paisley.
Kyogo Furuhashi notched a hat-trick against Dundee a fortnight, today Turnbull went home with the matchball with the former Motherwell midfielder growing in influence by the match.
Liel Abada opened the scoring in the 17th minute with a shot that Jak Alnwich won’t want to recall, by the interval Turnbull had scored his first two as well as a well placed header.
Celtic failed to maintain the same standards after the break but goals from Edouard and Turnbull completed a five match winning run at home that has revived the support and first team squad.
Postecoglou’s side now visit Alkmaar and Ibrox, two more wins will put the SPFL leaders into a great position going into the international break.
David Turnbull was unplayable today in a 6-0 win. The momentum is continued under Postecoglou ??
