Celtic touted to get rid of Christopher Jullien this summer

Celtic currently boast the best defensive record in the SPFL with just 21 goals conceded in 36 games.

Despite this impressive feat, it seems as though one of the Hoops’ defensive figures has been touted for a move away from Lennoxtown during the upcoming summer transfer window.

What’s the talk?

Speaking to Football Insider, former Celtic star Frank McAvennie had this to say about the future of Hoops defender Christopher Jullien.

He said: “Ange doesn’t fancy him, you forget he plays for us. He’s played once this season so you do wonder if Ange has decided he isn’t good enough.

“To not even have had some sub appearances at the end of games, that speaks volumes for me. So, he’s one who could go this summer because he hasn’t played regular football for so long now.

“It’s probably better for everyone that he is moved on because I’m sure if Ange rated him then he would be playing. I just get the feeling he’s not in Ange’s plans because there was a big deal made about him coming back and now there is nothing.”

Bad news for the Hoops

Celtic signed the defender back in the 2019 summer transfer window from French club Toulouse in a deal worth a reported fee of around £7m.

Since then, the Frenchman has gone on to make 62 appearances for the Hoops across all competitions, chipping in with ten goals and four assists along the way.

During his time at Parkhead, the centre-back has been struck with some injury issues, including a knee problem that kept him out of action for a full year from December 2020 to December 2021 per Transfermarkt.

Despite playing just nine league games, Jullien ended the campaign as Celtic’s highest-rated player with an overall performance rating of 7.46/10 from WhoScored, showing how much quality he has.

Should Celtic get rid of Christopher Jullien this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This season has seen the 29-year-old play just 16 minutes of action across all competitions which came during Celtic’s 4-0 win over Raith Rovers back in February.

Looking ahead to the summer, it would be a massive shame for the supporters if the Hoops were to get rid of the defender before giving him a shot at getting back into the team and playing on a regular basis again.

After all, he has proven a reliable figure both offensively and defensively during his time in Glasgow.
