The Celtic support have reacted positively to an apologetic recent Christopher Jullien tweet.
The former French youth international took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to say sorry to the Celtic support for his recent performance in the defeat to Livingston. Jullien admitted he was “too nervous” in the encounter and thanked the Livingston attack for “that wake up call”.
Back 2 @spfl . Have to make right some things. Sorry Celtic fans for being too nervous last time, won't happen again. And to be fair I have to thank Livingstone's forwards for that wake up call…. Either I win or I learn 👊🏽🍀💚 #hoopsupsideyourhead #stayfocused #neverstaydown pic.twitter.com/WRwY2RYDBz

The vocal Hoops support may have been pretty agitated after the 2-0 defeat in West Lothian ten days ago, but it seems they have now calmed down and are looking to the future. They showed that reflection in their replies to £7million Jullien’s tweet. Here are some of the finest responses.
Chris…takes a big man to admit that. Well done and we are right behind you. Hail hail Chris….

Celtic fans will hope that the team share Jullien’s attitude
Hopefully the big 6ft 5in defender’s feelings are mirrored by the rest of his Celtic teammates. The Livingston defeat stung us and not being top of the table hurts, but there’s a long way to go in the season and real possibilities in four different competitions.
Perhaps Jullien and his fellow new recruits needed a reminder that things weren’t always going to be easy in Scotland. Things were going swimmingly prior to our two most recent league matches and they may well have given everyone a bit of a wake up call.
This Celtic team should be ready for war now over the next seven months. We’ve got a ninth successive title to win, and we’re not going to give up our crown without a fight.
