David Turnbull has suggested his exit from Celtic was down to 'other things'.

The Scotland midfielder, 24, departed Glasgow on the final day of the transfer window as he moved on to pastures new at Cardiff City.

The former Motherwell academy star joined the Championship club for a fee of £2m with just six months remaining on his deal at Parkhead.

He found himself out of favour under Brendan Rodgers, much like he did under Ange Postecoglou last term.

Turnbull admits he found it difficult when he fell down the pecking order at the champions.

However, despite his Celtic career fizzling out, he insists he has nothing but happy memories from his time in a Hoops jersey.

He said: "I think it was the right time for me (to move on). I had a great time at Celtic, a great three and a half years, and I loved every minute of it.

"But maybe the last six months to a year hasn't been the way I wanted it. To come to a team like Cardiff is a great move for myself.

"It's about trying to replicate some things I have done before and putting my own style on to the team. At the start of the season I was playing games and after that fell away a wee bit. Sometimes in football that happens.

"Whether it is down to other things I am not sure, but I leave Celtic happy with a lot of my time there and it's time to come on to new things now."

He didn’t really know what to do, or where to look.
