Neil Lennon has confirmed that the Celtic star is finally set to return to training and might be back in contention after the international break.
It is safe to say that Celtic could do with all the help that they can at this point of time. As things stand, they have won only two of their last seven games and are going through one of their worst runs of form in recent memory. In fact, their 4-1 defeat against Sparta Prague in the Europa League was the first time that the team had lost three straight times at home in 30 years. A record Neil Lennon would not enjoy having under his belt.
One of the weakest points in this team has undoubtedly been their defence. Shane Duffy has struggled badly over the last couple of weeks and looks like a mistake waiting to happen at the back right now. As a result, the comeback of Christopher Jullien will come back as a timely boost.
Neil Lennon confirmed earlier that he is set to resume training and could be back in contention following the international break. As reported by Daily Record, he said:
“Christopher Jullien will resume training soon, hopefully he’ll be back in contention after the international break.”

Jullien has been out with a back injury for almost two months now and recently was sent to Germany in order to get specialist treatment. And the fans will be hoping that he has managed to put his issues behind because his absence has made his importance to this team evident.
While the Frenchman has had his critics since moving to Parkhead, there is no denying that the club were doing much better when he was in the mix of things. And let’s just say that he can restore some solidity to what has been a leaky defence in recent weeks.
Hopefully, this is turning over a new leaf when it comes to this season. The 4-1 win over Motherwell was a good start and now hopefully, the players can recharge their batteries and rectify some of the mistakes that they have been making recently. 10IAR is hanging by a thread and we cannot afford anymore slip ups.
