Christopher Jullien talks and plays like a winner. The Frenchman has the ability to grow into a big influence in the dressing room the way he goes about his business.

After Celtic lost so many big personalities in the summer it was vital not to bring in just talented players but people who could potentially lead by example.

Jullien is certainly showing he can mix and his attitude is first class.

The Frenchman echoed the thoughts of many Celtic fans after Thursday night when he admitted he was a little sad Celtic couldn’t get the win. Many had wrote the team off before kick-off and by the end of the game we got a great point but many felt it could’ve been more – including the centre-back.

Rennes resorted to cheating in the end to get one of our men sent off – they were not enjoying their evening one bit.

Speaking about the experience, Jullien told SunSport Celtic have come a long way in a short space of time.

“It wasn’t such a big result, to be honest. We played reasonably well at times, but we didn’t have as many shots at goal as we would have liked.

“But I thought we played  well and limited them to one or two chances.

“Even in the final few minutes, when they were pushing for the win, they didn’t create many chances.

“It was a little bit of a sad feeling not to get the three points.

“It’s hard to take but  it shows how far we’ve come that we were disappointed not to have beaten the team who are second top of the French league.”
