Celtic journalist Anthony Joseph has confirmed that Celtic defender Chris Jullien will be out injured for around 4 months.

This is a massive loss to Neil Lennon and the Celtic squad as Jullien is one of our key centre-backs.

This would mean that Neil Lennon now only has Ajer, Bitton and Duffy at his disposal, we aren’t including Welsh as he’s not a first-team player but could be utilised more after today’s report.

This could force the Celtic board into making funds available for Lennon to bring in another defender.

If either of our three main players are injured it would be catastrophic to the season ahead.

It’s not just that, 3 or 4 months out pretty much puts Jullien out for most the remaining season.
