Celtic defender Christopher Jullien has dropped a huge hint that he could make a return to the Celtic line-up between now and the end of the season.
He suffered a serious knee injury which kept him out for 409 days until he made an emotional return to action in February in the Scottish Cup.
Will Celtic do well in Europe next season?
He hasn’t featured since but with the Hoops all but mathematically Premiership winners he could be in line to feature in their final two games of the season.
In his latest Instagram post, the former France U20 international teased a return with an hourglass emoji alongside him pictured in training which could be counting down the days to he takes to the field.
TIF Thoughts on Jullien…
The defender admitted that he “couldn’t see the end” of his injury nightmare but the latest upload would appear to suggest that he is in line for a run-out as Celtic enjoy their celebrations.
He hasn’t been able to make Ange Postecoglou’s matchday squad for a league game since February never mind dislodge the terrific tandem of Carl Starfelt and Cameron Carter-Vickers in the heart of the league’s best defence.
However, he was pretty much a regular in the team before his nightmare almost a year and a half ago and it seems as if he will get his chance sooner rather than later.
His recovery could come full circle if he appears on Wednesday night against the same side, Dundee United, that he sustained his freak injury.
