Celtic defender Chris Jullien is trying to stay positive despite the injury that has ruled him out of action on the pitch, posting on Instagram today.

Jullien collided with the post against Dundee United late last year and won’t be able to play for months.

In fact, the Frenchman is still on crutches and in a leg brace, as seen in the new social media post this afternoon.

He posted a photo accompanied with the caption: “Against all odds.”

Teammate and friend Ismaila Soro was quick to respond with a message of support in the comments, telling Jullien: “I know that you will come back even more ready and stronger than before. Strength and courage my man.”

Jullien has been a definite miss for Celtic in the heart of Neil Lennon’s defence.

He was one of our top performers last season but this term has barely got going.

Celtic have had to rely on the inexperienced Stephen Welsh, or the unconvincing Shane Duffy, in his absence.

With Kristoffer Ajer potentially leaving the club this summer and important European qualifiers on the horizon, we need Jullien back to full fitness as quickly as possible, with no complications.

Everyone will be hoping that Soro is spot on with his prediction. Jullien coming back stronger sounds good to me.
