Neil Lennon Confirms Christopher Jullien Will Make Competitive Debut Against Nomme Kalju

Celtic‘s new signing Christopher Jullien will make his competitive debut for the Hoops tomorrow night in Estonia, manager Neil Lennon has revealed.

The towering centre-back arrived in Glasgow earlier this summer from Toulouse, with the Scottish champions forking out a reported £7 million for the 26-year-old.

However, despite featuring in a friendly with Rennes, Jullien has been forced to wait for his official bow in the iconic green and white jersey, with Lennon opting for a combination of Kristoffer Ajer, Nir Bitton and Jozo Siminuovic ahead of the Frenchman.

Celtic thrashed their Estonian opponents 5-0 at home last Wednesday night, and will play the second-leg of their second-round Champions League qualifier in Tallinn tomorrow night, and it seems fans will finally get a good look at their latest signing.

Neil Lennon confirmed plans to hand Jullien his debut in his press conference earlier today:

So, do you think Jullien will go on to be a genuine star for Celtic?
