CELTIC assistant manager John Kennedy tonight insisted that David Turnbull is capable of playing his way into the Scotland squad for the Euro 2020 finals this summer.
Turnbull, a £3.25m signing from Motherwell in August, netted a long-range goal in the first-half of the Premiership match at Parkhead to ensure the quadruple treble winners triumphed 1-0.
The 21-year-old playmaker, who took his tally for the 2020/21 campaign to eight with his strike, has never been capped by his country at full international level.
However, former Scotland centre half Kennedy feels he could force his way into Steve Clarke’s plans if he continues performing at such a high level in the coming weeks.
“I wouldn’t rule it out,” he said. “Steve will have a lot of decisions to make with his squad. Maybe he will be loyal to the guys that got him there.
“But David is doing everything he can in terms of performances to ask the question. That’s all he can do, but ultimately it’s Steve’s choice and decision. From a selfish point of view, we just worry about him doing well for us.”
