NEIL LENNON has delivered an injury update ahead of Livingston’s visit to Celtic Park on Saturday and it’s not good news for one of our star players.
The Celtic gaffer confirmed first team defender Christopher Jullien has picked up a knock and is now a major doubt for the game at Celtic Park.
Jullien was rested against St Mirren at the weekend but was expected to come back into the squad for the weekend tie. Unfortunately, it looks like the Frenchman will sit this one out. Neil Lennon is unlikely to risk the big Frenchman with so many big games coming up.
There’s a chance he could make it but with sufficient backup, it’s wise not to risk him.

The injury update DIDN’T include Tom Rogic or Leigh Griffiths for the first time in a long time, meaning they must be fit enough to challenge for a place in the squad. Two major players on their day.
