Celtic recently uploaded the unique angle video of the Hoops’ hard-fought 2-1 win over Motherwell at Fir Park, and it showcased a moment of genius from Hoops midfielder David Turnbull.

The midfielder hasn’t been at his best this season, but he looked back to his best in a big moment in the game.

His brilliant pass set up Daizen Maeda to score Celtic’s second goal which clinched the three points for the Hoops.

The pass was inch perfect, and it showed that when he is at his best, Turnbull can be a very useful player for the Hoops, and he showed that with his pass.


The goal scored by Maeda has to be considered as one of the best that Celtic have scored this season, as it was not only a great ball from Turnbull, but it was an excellent finish by the Japanese attacker. He has often been criticised for his finishing, but it was a finish that one of Celtic’s main strikers – Kyogo or Georgios Giakoumakis would have been proud of.

The goal came at a great time too, as the Hoops had been struggling to create real chances, but Turnbull took matters into his own hands and his great pass has to be considered as one of the best moments of what wasn’t a great performance by the Hoops.

When the team doesn’t play all that well, like Celtic didn’t against Motherwell, sometimes it takes a moment of magic to win a game, and that is what happened with Turnbull’s pass.

Turnbull has been needing to up his game this season, as so far he hasn’t played as well as he did last season, but the assist against Motherwell could be a good start to getting back into the Celtic starting line-up on a regular basis.

Celtic will need all of their squad to contribute this season, especially players who don’t start every game, and that is what Turnbull and Maeda did. Neither man started the game for the Bhoys, but they combined to score a very valuable goal which secured the three points for the Hoops.

Hopefully Turnbull can be an effective player for Celtic when the Hoops return to action after the World Cup break, his cameo against Motherwell was certainly a good start as the player looks to become a Hoops mainstay once more after a slow start to the season.
