Celtic centre-back Christopher Jullien seems to be missing football as much as the rest of us are. As everyone knows, the game is on lockdown as the world gets to grips with the global pandemic.

Once that is suitably dealt with, football will return to Scotland, but that might not be for a while yet.

Juillien took his Twitter account on Monday night to lament the number of days it has been since the Hoops played.


“Football will come back”

“23 days without football” he remarked, with a timer emoji and a photo of himself looking suitably disgruntled after missing a chance for the Hoops.

He also told fans to stay safe and said that ‘football will come back’.

Jullien’s Tweet seemed to strike a chord with some Hoops fans on social media. They seem as annoyed about the lack of football as the Frenchman is.

However, there is an understanding that football isn’t the most important thing at the moment, and dealing with the virus.

Atmosphere will be incredible at first game back

Just imagine how good it will be when fans can go to games again. The atmosphere at Celtic Park will be incredible.

For the moment though, fans must heed Jullien’s call to stay safe, and stay at home. That hasn’t prevented some Hoops supporters from telling the player how much they have missed football though.

One fan claimed the lack of football was ‘brutal’. Another fan claimed that it felt like 23 years more than 23 days.

Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to Jullien’s comments:
