CELTIC manager Ange Postecoglou reckons midfielder David Turnbull picked up an injury during Sunday's Premier Sports Cup final because he has been playing too many games.

The Parkhead boss lifted his first trophy in Scotland at Hampden after his side came from behind to defeat Hibernian 2-1.

Summer signing Kyogo Furuhasho scored both goals for the Glasgow club after Paul Hanlon gave the men from Leith a surprise lead at the start of the second half.

It wasn't all rosy for Postecoglou, though, as he had to bring Turnbull off midway through the opening half as the 22-year-old landed awkwardly on his leg.

The former Motherwell playmaker immediately clutched his leg and winced as he knew his final was over, and could be seen sitting in the stand with tears in his eyes after he left the pitch.

It is believed that Turnbull has sufffered a hamstring injury and Postecoglou admitted after the full-time whistle that Celtic's hectic fixture list played its part.

"David suffered from the amount of games we are playing at the moment," Postecoglou explained.

"We are suffering because of that.

"We have not been able to rotate the squad a lot and that is hurting us at the moment, picking up these injuries.

"We will just see how he is."
