Kristoffer Ajer and Christopher Jullien do have a fair few similarities.

They’re both Celtic centre-backs. They’re both giants at 6ft 5in. And they both share the same first name. Kind of.

But that will be little consolation to an employee at Celtic who had a bit of a Friday nightmare.

In a now deleted tweet, the club revealed that Ajer was a doubt for tomorrow’s game at Hibernian, per quotes from Neil Lennon’s press conference.

Except the quotes weren’t about Ajer at all – and instead Jullien who hasn’t played since mid September.

Celtic confirmed the major cock-up later on Friday evening.

So Ajer should be good for tomorrow. Panic over then.

It’s fair to say relief was the main emotion amongst the Hoops faithful as the correction broke. Here’s what they had to say.


Ajer being fit is great, but we need Jullien soon too

Relief is this writer’s main emotion too.

Nothing against Shane Duffy, but I feel far more content with Ajer at centre-back tomorrow.

The Norwegian’s supposed injury news did seem bizarre, given that he’d been part of his national team’s setup in the recent international break.

Hopefully he starts tomorrow and helps us to a clean sheet.

And hopefully Jullien can soon partner him at the back. The Frenchman has been a mega miss for us over the past ten weeks.

He will be like a new signing when he returns.
