Celtic fans unhappy to see Bitton start instead of Jullien

Celtic fans aren’t happy with Neil Lennon’s decision not to start Christopher Jullien in the club’s first competitive match of the season.

The Hoops have announced the starting eleven to play away at Sarajevo in the first round of UEFA Champions League qualifying.

How can Celtic improve next season? A Hoops fan tells us how in the video below…

Jullien, one of their big summer signings, does not feature with Lennon appearing to opt for a pairing of Jozo Simunovic and Nir Bitton in the heart of the defensive line, while it’s possible Kristoffer Ajer could be joining them in a back three.

The former Toulouse man has only had a week’s training with his new teammates, so it makes sense that the Hoops boss might not want to risk his fitness in a match of such importance.

Celtic are looking to progress to the group stages of the competition and have a gruelling four rounds of qualifying to navigate in order to do so, so it’s likely Jullien will feature sooner rather than later this summer.
