JULLIEN BACKS BROONY AFTER ‘UGLY’ TAUNTS

0

CHRISTOPHER JULLIEN has reassured Scott Brown the Celtic family will support him after the midfielder was the victim of alleged vile abuse following the 2-0 win at Ibrox on Sunday.

The Hoops skipper, who lost his sister Fiona when she was just 21 years of age to skin cancer in 2008, was taunted about the tragedy by a home supporter.

The footballing community has gathered to condemn the incident for which a 15-year-old has now been arrested and charged.

The Parkhead star stared back and looked stunned before police moved in.

A video emerged on social media following the game showing Brown being allegedly targeted by a fan relating to the death of his sister.

A voice was heard clearly saying: “How’s your sister?”

A Police Scotland spokeswoman admitted no official complaint had been lodged by Celtic or Brown.

The clip, originally posted on Facebook, showed the 34-year-old former Scotland international leaving the stadium to board the team bus.

The home team’s officials have confirmed that an individual would be “banned for life from Ibrox” as a result.

Twenty-six-year-old Jullien, the club’s £7million summer signing from Toulouse, put in a man-of-the-match performance and told a media conference: “I didn’t see the video, but I’ve heard about it.

“I don’t think it’s good behaviour. It’s not welcome in every stadium.

“We are with Broony. We are giving Broony all the support he needs, but I don’t know what else to say. It’s just ugly. I don’t like that.”

Commenting on the actual football, the towering central defender added: “We know it is a big win, but the season is long. Watching the celebrations with the fans on video gives me goosebumps.

“But in my head each day I can improve and the team can, too. We are good, but we can be better.”
