‘Looks Assured’ ‘Looked Like Virgil’ ‘Cigar N Slippers’ Celtic Fans On Twitter Rate £7m Signing’s First Appearance

Celtic fans have been keenly awaiting Christopher Jullien’s first appearance in a Hoops shirt since his £7m arrival from Toulouse.

The 26-year-old did not take any part in the first leg of the Champions League qualifier against FK Sarajevo due to fitness issues, but he was given his first start against Rennes in a friendly yesterday afternoon.

With the match ending in a 0-0 draw, there wasn’t too much to write home about in terms of action, but Jullien did look calm and collected in the backline.

Supporters on Twitter gave the defender some good marks for his first game:

The question now will be whether manager Neil Lennon will look to give him his competitive debut against Sarajevo on Wednesday night.

Jullien looks short of match sharpness, but with with a two-goal advantage from the first leg, and three away goals, the Celtic boss may opt to give the Frenchman another runout.
