Jordan Turnbull was probably one of the biggest reasons why we were relegated last season. Not only did he put in a number of error-strewn performances for much of the campaign, but the circumstances involved in bringing him in – letting Aaron Martin leave on a free and later selling Romain Vincelot – meant that there was no-one to turn to in defence to allow Turnbull to recover and improve upon those early performances.
Over the course of last season though, we started to see just why Tony Mowbray had paid a fee to bring him in. Capable of bringing the ball out from defence, Turnbull toughened up defensively and became a more assertive figure at the back. Currently out on loan to Partick Thistle after failing to secure a permanent move away from the club, Turnbull could prove to be a useful asset should he ever return to the club.
