Jullien ready to make history at Celtic


Celtic defender Christopher Jullien says the club can reach the Europa League final this season under manager Neil Lennon.

The Hoops have made another superb start to the campaign, and they are currently joint-top of the Scottish Premiership. Rivals Rangers are breathing down their neck, and it promises to be another close battle at the top.

As well as their domestic success, Lennon’s troops have performed above expectations in Europe.

Celtic are top of Group E after the first four games, and they are already through to the last 32 with two games remaining.

Jullien says he is loving life under Lennon’s stewardship and he believes they can compete for more silverware in 2020.


He told beIN Sport: “Since my signing, the staff, the club and the fans have been brilliant with me. They welcomed me with open arms, and now I feel good on the pitch.

“If I had a magic wand, I would love to reach the Europa League Final and score ten goals this season! We want to equal the nine-in-a-row record this season and the huge goal next season is to win 10-in-a-row.”

Jullien has only missed one game in the Premiership this season, and he is expected to be named in the starting XI when Celtic play Livingston on Saturday.

A clash with Rennes then follows before Lennon may start to rest players against Ross County and Hamilton Academical. A trip to Rangers will be on everyone’s mind with the two rivals set to battle it out on Sunday December 8.
