Celtic provide unexpected injury update

Image for Celtic provide unexpected injury update

Four hours after Ange Postecoglou’s media conference Celtic have published an injury update on Chris Jullien.

Unfortunately the tweet is very light on detail over the defender who hasn’t played in over nine months.

Jullien reported for pre-season training in June but it is believed that he has been restricted to gym work with no sign of him on the grass or taking part in outdoor sessions until today’s close up picture

Since Jullien’s last match, against Dundee United last December, there has been wholesale changes throughout the club, especially in defence.

Shane Duffy, Kris Ajer, Jeremie Frimpong and Diego Laxalt have moved on with Jonjoe Kenny arriving and departing without playing alongside the Frenchman.

Recent recruits Cameron Carter-Vickers and Carl Starfelt are expected to play tomorrow against Motherwell with Stephen Welsh on the bench as back-up.

With no timeline for Jullien’s return it looks like Ange Postecoglou will have to run with those three options through until the November international break at the earliest.
