Tam McManus Claims David Turnbull Needs Minor Knee Operation but Will ‘100%’ Still Sign For Celtic

Ex-Hibs and Dundee striker Tam McManus has claimed Motherwell midfielder David Turnbull will still ‘100 %’ be signing for Celtic, despite needing a minor knee operation.

So, perhaps this could offer worried Celtic supporters some relaxation, but what do you make of how the entire deal has been handled?
