Some fans wondered about saying sorry and questioned his mentality but at that stage the Frenchman was still something of an unknown quantity, barely a month into his Celtic career.
Jullien has buckled down, adapted his game slightly and reaped the rewards. Last night at Tynecastle he helped Celtic to their ninth successive SPFL victory to go alongside top spot in the Europa League and the first trophy of the season. It was the Frenchman that scored the only goal of the League Cup Final.
Hearts’ tactics last night were predictable and direct. When Steven McLean is your opponent you know to expect late challenges and clashes off the ball.
Jullien withstood whatever Hearts had to throw at Celtic with the understandings with Fraser Forster and Kris Ajer developing with every game played.
