Celtic defender issues Europa League rallying cry

Christopher Jullien is up for a repeat of his magic moment against Lazio a fortnight ago.

The Frenchman was without a goal since his summer switch from Toulouse when he went up for a corner in the closing moments with the match balanced at 1-1.

Set pieces haven’t really been anything for Celtic fans to get excited over but Ryan Christie’s delivery was perfect- as was Jullien’s execution as he directed his header across goal and into the net.

Once again Celtic had snatched a famous European victory right at the death. Jullien was engulfed in celebration by his team-mates before breaking away for his own Superman gesture to the fans.

There might not be as many chances around goal for Jullien tomorrow night in the Stadio Olympico but if he can help Fraser Forster achieve a clean sheet it will be just as valuable.

A draw would keep Celtic four points ahead of Lazio going into Matchday Five when Rennes are the visitors to Glasgow.
