BBC Sportsound pundit Tam McManus has come out swinging with regards to the David Turnbull transfer to Celtic.
The former footballer took to social media in an attempt to put an end to the speculation surrounding what’s going on at the moment. Turnbull’s on again/off again transfer to Celtic took another twist on Tuesday night with something being flagged up in the medical Celtic weren’t happy about.
McManus has tried to set the record straight and confirmed what’s holding the deal up for all parties at the moment. He then blasts all the idle rumours and abuse aimed at Turnbull because the deal hasn’t gone through yet.
David Turnbull has a small problem with his knee that requires an op (tidy up). Be out for 10-12 weeks. That’s it. Some of the shite I have heard about him on here is poor & embarrassing. Hurtful rumours about the kid. The deal will 100% still go through.

Celtic have been chasing the player’s signature for two weeks now since Motherwell confirmed they had accepted a bid from the Scottish Champions.
Since then, we’ve seen contract rejections, twitter statements and a trip down to Norwich where the player was offered a bigger deal. At the last minute, Turnbull made an incredible u-turn and rejected the Premier League Club.
Hopefully the deal gets over the line!
