I think that has been a bit too much of rising to the bait re the Turnbull situation.

In my opinion, we scored an OG with the poor Twitter post. That was a bad mistake and we should not have spat the dummy in public.

I get the bit about keeping fans informed but in this case, it has been counterproductive.

What do you guys think?

I think the deal is dead and that's why we made the statement, well I hope so anyway.

@thoybhoy. Find it strange we came out with that statement. He’s not the first and won’t be the last player that’s knocked us back asking for more money. I’m assuming the club felt it was the right decision at the time.
Still totally unexpected.

There was no need to put it out on twitter, or to put any kind of statement out anywhere, until everything was done and dusted, one way or the other.

If course the Club had to put a statement out or you would all be saying “why hasn’t he signed “ and “we probably only offered him £4K a week”. It’s a good deal for a 19 year old who has only played 30 or so games. Take it or leave it David. Hail Hail.

I think the club felt the agent was the one delaying the move as he was the sole representative while Turnbull was on holiday. Think the post was aimed at Turnbull to get his attention that the agent was potentially sabotaging the deal.

imo he did it this way to show he is doing all he can and not like the mcginn episode where he was ridiculed for his efforts.

They had to come out with the statement because if they didn't the fans would have been ready to march on park head with burning torches.

Totally agree kev it was a deflection tactic taking the responsibility away from lawell who would have been blamed by us fans.

16 Jun 2019 17:10:56
I wouldn't call it a deflection tactic.
I think it had to be done because the way the fans are right now.
Some fans will blame lawwell if they get a dose of squirts fae a dodgy curry right now.
Calming the hysteria that would have erupted was the correct thing to do.

Celtic were 100% correct to issue the statement they did regarding the turnbull situation. Celtic fans ( and I include myself in this) are notorious in slaughtering the board and lawwell ( some of it warranted) over the years. If say Celtic hadn’t issued the statement and the rags made out the deal fell through the vast majority of fans would have slaughtered lawwell for the old biscuit tin mentality. Absolutely no way she the club bow to this agents demands. Had the lad had 2/ 3 full seasons behind him then there’s room to haggle but 1 full season?

The statement was the right thing to do.

16 Jun 2019 21:21:20
The statement was the wrong thing to do, the boy was still on holiday, that could have been used to explain the delay,

What does turnbull being on holiday have anything to do with it? Bottom line is the initial offer was turned down and it would have been made known to the press for them then to fabricate a story to make Celtic look the villains of the piece. Celtic nullified that by getting they’re version of events in first. Put it this way aindoh, since Celtic released that statement, have turnbull or his representatives came out and slammed it or came out with their own version on what happened? That tells a story for me.

16 Jun 2019 23:49:37
It wouldn't have mattered, how would Celtic be the villains in the piece?, it would still have been the same story, it just wouldn't have Celtic that were making it public, when it became public, the board or whoever went onto twitter, could have put the facts in the public domain, I say again, what was the point of putting a statement out on twitter?, like I said, the boys on holiday, all the questions on here about why is it taking so long, could have been brushed aside with a "the boys on holiday", negotiations could still have been going on, things that were said in the heat of the moment, might have been thought over, and a phone call might have resuccitated the deal, but now that it's all out in the open it makes things more difficult, I say again what was the point of that twitter statement?
