Christopher Jullien is highly unlikely to be given his Celtic debut against Nomme Kalju tomorrow night.
The defender signed a four year deal on June 28 and initially had to get his fitness upto the standard of his new team-mates.
Jullien was given a 57 minute outing in the friendly against Rennes but seems certain to start tomorrow’s match watching from the bench.
Most fans expected to see Jullien paired with Kris Ajer but against the Estonian champions the hoops are likely to start with Nir Bitton and Jozo Simunovic in the heart of defence.
????? NL: “The players in front of @Chri6ViF are playing pretty well, but there’s still plenty of time for Chris to feature. @mikeyjohnston10 is back. Bayo and Shved are back training. Tomorrow might be too soon for them, but they’re getting towards full fitness.” #UCL #CELKAL

Mikey Johnston, Vakoun Bayo are Marian Shved are all back in full training but Johnston is the only one in contention for a place in the starting XI.
Celtic have until 11pm tonight to register any new signings but that deadline is unlikely to be tested with Lennon going with the same squad that saw off FK Sarajevo in the first round.
