Celtic are holding their breath Christopher Jullien will be fit for Ibrox on Saturday but the prognosis looks bleak at the moment.
The defender saved a certain goal when he chased back and knocked the ball off the line against Dundee Utd. However, his heroics came at a cost and his knee jammed into the post as he landed awkwardly.
The Frenchman was stretchered off as a result and left Celtic Park on crutches. Sky Sports man, Anthony Joseph has said the player is bruised but hasn’t been ruled out of the game on Saturday yet.

Neil Lennon also said he wants Vasilis Barkas to be the No1 goalkeeper at the club.
Celtic have won six games on the bounce and they look dangerous on the attack. They still don’t have the defensive capability to shut out teams who are going to have a go, it makes the Glasgow Derby son intriguing.
Neil Lennon has some big decisions to make and if Jullien doesn’t make it, will he with Nir Bitton or Shane Duffy?
