Celtic defender Christopher Jullien was unexpectedly quiet on social media following the Hoops’ midweek 2-2 draw with Livingston.

The player usually Tweets in the aftermath of a game, but this time he kept quiet on Friday night, when he returned to social media, but didn’t make any reference to the match.

One possible reason for Jullien’s reticence to discuss the game is that for the second time this season the player struggled against Livingston.

He once again had a hard time dealing with Lyndon Dykes, as the Livingston forward brushed past the defender to set up the second goal for Livingston in the game.

It might well be a source of frustration to Jullien that despite what has been for the most part a highly successful debut season for the Hoops, he has been unable to perform on Livingston’s plastic pitch.

The good news for the player though, is that it seems highly unlikely that Neil Lennon will lose faith in his abilities as a player.

After all, Lennon and Celtic spent Β£7 million on the centre-back, they are not going to jettison him from the side after one poor performance.

Retained support of some Hoops fans

The other piece of good news for Jullien is that judging by the response to his Tweet from some Celtic fans on social media he retains the support of a lot of Hoops followers.

One fan responded to Jullien’s Tweet by calling him a ‘class act’. Whilst another fan urged the centre-back to ‘stay positive’.
