Christopher Jullien updated Celtic fans on his injury recovery with a social media post on Saturday afternoon.
In the accompanying video, Jullien can be seen using building up the strength in his left leg, which is heavily strapped.
He writes that he is ‘setting new standards before a day off’.
In January, then-Celtic manager Neil Lennon revealed that Jullien would face up to four months out after damaging his knee in a collision with the goalpost against Dundee United (via BBC Sport).
After joining from Toulouse, Jullien was virtually ever-present in the Celtic side that landed a ninth consecutive SPFL title last season.
But this year he has been limited to just nine appearances. A back injury kept him out of action from mid-September until December.
Tellingly, in those nine games he has played, Celtic have shipped just three goals (via Transfermarkt).
Hoops fans were quick to wish him well as he reminded them how hard he working to get back on the pitch.

“Bravo Chris. Keep the faith and follow the process.”
“Get back soon big guy”
“Best of luck with the rehab Chris”
“Better than 10 in a row”
