FRANK MCAVENNIE has said that Chris Jullien’s “finished at Celtic” as he believes that the manager isn’t his biggest fan.
The French defender has yet to start a game under Ange Postecoglou, only appearing once from the bench. The Celtic manager has chosen to stick with the strong defensive partnership of Carl Starfelt and Cameron Carter-Vickers, who have the best defensive partnership in the league.
He was an expensive signing, but his injury has ended his Celtic career it seems, spending fourteen months out was never going to be easy to come back from.
The former Celtic striker told Football Insider;
“It’s clear that Ange doesn’t like him.
“There were so many games to play last season and he never got a look in, that tells me he’s pretty much finished at Celtic.
“But he hasn’t played and it doesn’t sound like he’s injured again so Ange clearly doesn’t like him as a player.
“I expect he will leave this summer because Ange won’t keep anyone who isn’t contributing.”
It’s hard to disagree with Macca here. Celtic have been linked to numerous defenders already and are keen to tie down Carter-Vickers.
It’s becoming obvious that Jullien isn’t in the manager’s plans. There are clubs in his homeland that are interested in the defender, but no official contact has been made yet.
