David Turnbull turned in probably his best Celtic performance to help drive Ange Postecoglou’s side to a 3-2 win away to Ferencvaros to keep alive hopes of progress in the Europa League.

The midfielder was playing in his 26th match of the season but not every performance has been met with the acclaim that he earned in Budapest.

Playing in a supporting role to Celtic’s front three the former Motherwell man had a strong part to pay in Celtic’s second and third goals to see off the Hungarian’s.

Turnbull’s passing and scoring ability has never been in doubt but whenever Celtic slip up some fans have been quick to point at a perceived lack of pace and being a light-weight among the hammer-throwers.

Celtic’s third goal dispelled that theory in an instant as he tracked back, out-muscled his opponent to regain possession with Liel Abada putting the ball in the net 10 seconds later.

How will Celtic get on away to Bayer Leverkusen?

Away win- We've got Kyogo doing his thing

Under Ange Celtic are a work in action with Turnbull looking like a very important player as the hard graft in training is transferred onto results on the pitch.
