In among the nonsense spouted by some in the mainstream media about Christopher Jullien’s interview on BeInSports, there was some good news despite some leading with Celtic exit headlines.
We reported on the quotes but through the prism and translation of a French Celtic supporter who wasn’t happy with the way Jullien’s interview was translated.

“I suffered an injury in Sept, I came back for 6 weeks with the team, we won the Scottish Cup and achieved the Quadruple Treble which is historical for the club. We were already behind in the league at this time, and I couldn’t help my team due to my injury
“In January and February we didn’t get good results, It has hurt to see that. We had lots of discussions with the coach and the group, from playing in front of a full Celtic Park to closed doors didn’t help… it could have been a historic season, unfortunately, we didn’t achieve that.
“Scoring in the League Cup final was incredible. I have still chills speaking of. I celebrated my goal with my family in the stands. Our match wasn’t good, Fraser Forster was our hero this day, it was difficult. On social media, some fans still remind me of this game and this goal.”
The Celtic France account also confirming when Jullien said he will be fit and ready to go next season – the defender claims he will be ready by September/October time which is actually a better prognosis than before.
Jullien has not been available for most of this season and Celtic’s defence has suffered. A lot of fans were disgruntled at the start of the season that the player is too soft when coming up against larger opponents. This gave birth to Shane Duffy coming in as a no-nonsense defender and look what’s transpired.
Celtic need ball playing, intelligent defenders and Christopher Jullien, on the whole, has been brilliant for Celtic. Hopefully, he will be back strong shortly after the new season begins.
