Chris Jullien hasn’t wasted time in switching his focus from the glamour of cup finals and European matches.

Six months after joining Celtic from Toulouse the popular defender has picked up a cup winners medal, beaten Lazio home and away and has helped his new club into the last 32 of the Europa League.

Celtic have five domestic matches squeezed into a 14 day period before the players can relax a little with Jullien leaving no one in any doubt about his focus.

Despite carrying two booking Jullien was in Celtic’s starting line up against Cluj with the threat hanging over him that another booking would result in missing the first leg of the Round of 32 due to suspension.

The big defender tested the patience of the referee with four first half fouls but survived to the interval without being disciplined with Kris Ajer taking his place after the break.

On Sunday Jullien faces Hibs for the third time this season quickly followed by a trip to Tynecastle before Aberdeen visit Celtic Park a week tomorrow.
