Chris Jullien was the fall guy for Celtic’s 1-1 draw at Kilmarnock.

The Frenchman looked far from comfortable against Nicke Kabamba, hauling down the Killie forward for a penalty that led to the equaliser following Ryan Christie’s opening goal.

Jullien looked uncomfortable throughout with the combination of the plastic pitch and the physical play of Kabamba making life difficult.

Midway through the second half Jeremie Frimpong was replaced by Hatem Abd Elhamed as Celtic switched to a back three.

Celtic enjoyed 70% possession throughout the match but only managed two attempts on goal, one of them being Christie’s free kick in the 11th minute.

After the match Neil Lennon refused to blame Jullien for the dropped points, pointing out that he started last season slowly as well before becoming a major influence on the title winning success.

There isn’t much time to turn things around with Celtic away to St Mirren on Wednesday with the match kicking off at 6pm.
