Christopher Jullien hasn’t featured for Celtic since September 12 due to a back injury.

However, a return could be around the corner for the towering centre-back, who posted a promising update on social media on Thursday evening – which went down a treat with several Hoops fans.

Jullien revealed that the ‘first part of the rehab is done’ alongside a video of the Frenchman doing various exercises in his Celtic training gear.

It didn’t take long for Jullien’s post to reach the Celtic faithful, and many were quick to reply. Some were excited about the update, while others shared their appreciation towards the defender’s hard work in his rehabilitation.

Is Jullien Celtic's best defender?

Yes

No

Whenever Jullien returns to full fitness and is available for selection, it’ll be interesting to see what Neil Lennon does.

He’ll have to decide on his best centre-back partnership between Jullien, Kris Ajer, Shane Duffy and even Nir Bitton, or decide to revert to a back three.
