Celtic stopper Christopher Jullien proved the highs and lows of being a Hoops player.

The Frenchman will not forget Hamilton Accies striker Marios Ogkmpoe in a hurry.

However, the £7 million summer buy popped up with the decisive second goal.


The strike was as good as his defending was bad in the opening stages of the game, splitting fan opinion.

This was even picked up by BT Sport commentator Rory Hamilton during the game.

There were sloppy passes and positioning and Ogkmpoe was having free rein against him.

The big Cypriot even beat Jullien in the air to score from a corner to give the bottom side the lead.

However, Jullien came out refreshed and took the second half in his stride.

The tide was slowly turning towards the Hoops and it was Jullien who helped solidify that dominance.

Substitute Jonny Hayes got down the left and cushioned a ball to Jullien who made a darting move to slot home.

It was the ideal striker’s finish, one that fans would be raving about if Odsonne Edouard had done it.

But, fans just can’t agree on how to judge Jullien’s overall performance during the 1-4 victory.
