DAVID TURNBULL completed his deadline day move to Cardiff City in a deal worth in the region of £2million to Celtic.
Mikey Johnston also sealed his loan switch to West Brom in a bid to get some much-needed game-time.
The pair joined Marco Tilio in leaving the champions in this window with the Australian international winger returning on a temporary deal to Melbourne City.
Turnbull, who cost £2.75million when Neil Lennon bought him from Motherwell in the summer of 2020, was coming out of contract in June and could have walk for free.
