Some Celtic fans have been fuming at an injury update involving Christopher Jullien that recently emerged on social media.

Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph has recently relayed an update about Jullien’s injury. The Frenchman was stretchered off in Celtic’s 3-0 win over Dundee United in the Premiership. Joseph’s tweet stated that the defender has some bruising and swelling around his knee area and Celtic will assess him for fitness before the upcoming Old Firm derby.

Man up big man. Get the ice on it and you’ll be fine. Imagine big Cesar with that. Nothing would stop him playing on Saturday.

In his games in the Premiership season, Jullien has racked up an impressive rating of 7.46 so far. He has been the club’s second-highest rated player in the campaign and that shows his importance at the Parkhead-based side (as per Whoscored).

Celtic are currently 16 points behind the Gers in the table and because of that, the Old Firm will be a very important game. Because of Jullien’s performances, his fitness could affect the tie’s outcome.
