CHRISTOPHER JULLIEN has apologised to Celtic fans for his nervy performance in the 2-0 loss at Livingston that wrecked the team’s unbeaten domestic record.
The £7million French centre-half, the most expensive defender in the club’s history, looked tense and distracted as he squared up to Aussie powerhouse Lyndon Dykes who claimed the killer second goal in an x-certificate display from Neil Lennon’s champions.
Jullien’s performance in West Lothian shocked the Hoops supporters, especially after his towering outings against Cluj three days earlier and also his commanding roles in the 1-1 draw in Rennes and the 2-0 success at Ibrox.
The 26-year-old former Toulouse back-four operator, along with Kristoffer Ajer, was criticised heavily following the loss of a fifth point in two games after the 1-1 draw with Hibs the previous week.
The 6ft 7in Frenchman is poised to return to club duty when Ross County visit Parkhead on Saturday and he has vowed to learn from his mistakes.
He wrote on Instagram: “Back 2 @spflofficial.
“Have to make right some things.
“Sorry Celtic fans for being too nervous last time, won’t happen again.
“And to be fair I have to thank Livingston’s forwards for that wake up call…. Either I win or I learn. #stayfocus #neverstaydown #hoopsupsideyahead”.
The Hoops face Serie A outfit Lazio in Glasgow on Thursday following the Premiership restart against the Dingwall side.
