Celtic defender has taken to Twitter to ease the minds of any fans concerned about his injury status in the wake of today’s match against Kilmarnock.
Jullien was substituted off in the 84th minute, with Neil Lennon confirming after the game it was a precaution after the player felt a hamstring problem.
However, the player himself seems to think nothing is wrong and that he’ll be fit for upcoming matches.
He’s also saluted fans sending him ‘good vibes’ in the stadium.
Hi, Paradise! I'm all good, just had to be careful on this one. I heard your good vibes in the park 👊🏽🍀💚💚 And hey @Oedouard22 and @ryanchristie2 please don't stop scoring 💪🏽😄 #monthehoops pic.twitter.com/yR506WqLYW

The defender has been in excellent form of late and clearly losing him would be a bitter blow to Lennon’s defensive options.
Looking worth every penny of the monstrous fee paid for him during the summer transfer window, he’s emerging as a real leader within the current starting eleven.
That was something noted by pundit Chris Sutton this weekend.
If we can keep him fit and healthy then there’s no reason to think he won’t be one of our most important performers over the course of the season.
How have fans responded?
Supporters are clearly delighted he’s not an injury concern moving deeper into the season. We have a hectic schedule on the horizon.
Apart from international breaks, Lennon’s side will be playing mid-week to weekend football each month until December.
Jullien is going to be a massive part of that run, especially in Europe. Against Rennes on Thursday night he looked like a player we’ve been missing at that level for years.
These fans took to Twitter tonight to respond to his most recent message…
Glad you are alright King Julien 👑
