Chris Jullien is looking sharp in training according to Carl Starfelt.
The Frenchman hasn’t played any football this year but on Friday Celtic tweeted a picture of Jullien training outdoors for the first time.
After 10 months out of action the final stages of recovery have to be monitored very closely but at some stage over the next month Ange Postecoglou should be gaining a £7m defender.
Discussing Jullien, Starfelt told the Daily Record:
I haven’t seen him play too much, but I think he’s a good player. He’s a great guy and I’ve trained with him in a couple of sessions. He is looking sharp and we hope to have him back soon.
During his last spell in the team Jullien was playing alongside Kris Ajer, Diego Laxalt and Jeremie Frimpong who have all moved on.
When a player returns from a long term injury it is often said that he is like a new signing- in the case of Jullien it will be like a new signing joining a new team.
Starfelt and Cameron Carter-Vickers appear to have edged the challenge of Stephen Welsh aside, the availability of Jullien will present Postecoglou with a fresh dilemma as he searches for his best starting XI.
