Celtic defender Christopher Jullien has confirmed that he didn’t suffer any ill effects from a head injury during the 1-0 win against Hamilton on Saturday.
The Frenchman played the full 90 minutes despite the knock, and when asked about the problem on Twitter, the centre-back said that he is fully fit:
And yeah the head is ok 👌🏽thanks for asking! 🙏🏽🍀 #GoodPeople

After not featuring as prominently during the early stages of the season, the £7m recruit from Toulouse is now a mainstay in Celtic’s defence.
Jullien was imperious during the Old Firm win earlier this month, and he has played a pivotal role in shoring up a backline, which had trouble keeping the opposition out at the beginning of the season.
In the 26-year-old’s eight starts this campaign, Celtic have conceded just five goals with four of those games being clean sheets. He will be hoping for another solid performance when the Hoops face Rennes in the Europa League on Thursday.
