Some Celtic supporters have been loving defender Christopher Jullien’s comments in the wake of Sunday’s win over Rangers.
The centre-back produced a man of the match calibre display to help the Hoops keep a clean sheet at Ibrox.
Winning 2-0, Neil Lennon’s side have now moved three points clear at the Scottish Premiership.
Jullien has had a lot to say about the match, not only claiming that opponent Alfredo Morelos stamped on his foot but also revealing what he told the Colombian in the aftermath of the incident.
As quoted by The Daily Record, he explained: “I said to him after he stamped on my foot, You can come more and more (at me) for more than one time. The more you come at me, the more the zero stays on that scoreboard.
“I told him that this is my strength and this is where I come from. A guy like him is not going to put me down. No one is going to put me down.”
It’s the kind of fighting talk we love to hear from our derby heroes, especially when they’ve just managed the kind of performance that Jullien has.
The Frenchman will be hoping to perform similarly well for the club over a consistent period, with big challenges ahead in the UEFA Europa League.
Supporters have been left delighted by his comments, with these fans taking to Twitter to share their thoughts this week…
Love it 🤣🤣

It was the performance he needed, as with the rest of the back line. You could see the confidence grow during the game, forcing the other lot to shift into the ‘found out, inept and raging’ gear. Hope to see more competition between our defenders than from opponents this season.

I might be wrong but he has VVD written all over him.

Jullien on Morelos’ stamp:
