Celtic fans are all saying the same thing about Chrisopher Jullien

Celtic extended their lead at the top of the SPFL to seven points on Sunday afternoon with a 4-1 victory over Hamilton.

The hosts were penned into their own half during the second 45 minutes as the Hoops pressed and probed for a breakthrough, and they eventually got the goal they were deeply craving courtesy of a fine finish from Christopher Jullien.

The towering central defender temporarily assumed the role of an auxiliary striker and opened up his body to caress a volley into the far corner following a low cross from Ryan Christie.

It was a devilish finish at a perfect time but concerns over his defensive prowess manifested during the course of the game.

Indeed, fans on Twitter were eager to point out his difficulty in dealing with Marios Ogboe’s physicality and made that point clear on social media.

This supporter was left so frustrated by the 26-year-old’s struggle to deal with his opposite number that he went as far to suggest that Celtic overpaid with their £7m deal.

Elsewhere supporters expressed similar complaints in their droves.

Was Jullien worth £7m?

Yes

Yes

No -

No -

He may well have scored the vital breakthrough goal to put the visitors in front but it seems he will need to improve his ability to deal with powerful centre-forwards in order to fully win over the entirety of the fanbase.

Finally, one fan incorporated Rangers into his analysis by suggesting the signing of Florian Kamberi on deadline day was made to expose Jullien’s key weakness.
