Lennon Provides A Positive Update On Injured Celtic Pair

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has confirmed that both Moritz Bauer and Christopher Jullien suffered knocks in the 3-1 win against Kilmarnock.

Bauer twisted his ankle and was replaced eleven minutes from the end by Hatem Abd Elhamed, while Jullien was taken off with a hamstring problem.

Lennon says that while Bauer may be out for a bit longer, he has no concerns about Jullien who was brought off the pitch with six minutes to go as a precaution:

“Moritz’s injury was trauma. He got a bang and twisted his ankle. Chris felt it a little bit on his hamstring but we think he’ll be fine.”

It’s unlikely that either player will feature against Partick Thistle in the League Cup quarter-final on Wednesday, but Jullien could be back to face Hibernian for the league clash next Saturday.

The Frenchman, in particular, has already become a fan’s favourite after putting in a string of excellent displays. It has led to former player Chris Sutton to describe him as the “rock for Celtic” after the 1-1 draw against Rennes on Thursday night.
