Christopher Jullien has been reminiscing about one of his finest days in green and white hoops.

The Frenchman departed the Scottish champions during the summer after being out for a prolonged period of time due to a serious knee injury.

He returned to his home country to Montpellier in Ligue 1 and has so far made a total of 10 appearances so far this season as he looks to build his gametime back up after rarely featuring under Ange Postecoglou.

His fondest moment for Celtic came against Rangers in the League Cup final when he scored the winning goal on what was a very nervy afternoon having met Ryan Christie’s delicious ball whipped into the box from a free-kick.

There’s no doubt that Celtic were second best on the day but managed to once again lift the silverware mainly due to the heroics of keeper Fraser Forster who was absolutely sensational between the sticks.

It’s a day that will live with Jullien forever with the 29-year-old admitting on social media  that he still gets “goosebumps” looking back on the footage.

Jullien also scored other important goals during his first season at the club having also scored a late winner against Lazio in a 2-1 victory but this cup final goal just seemed to be the sweetest.
