Former Rangers player Alan Hutton has nothing but praise for Celtic’s towering defender Christopher Jullien as Hutton brands him as “superb”.

The Frenchman joined the club from Toulouse in a £7million move last summer, becoming the Hoops’ second most expensive signing ever.

Hutton has also said that Jullien has had a massive impact on the Celtic squad.

He is a big man mountain. He has been superb for them. Not only defending, but he has also chipped in with goals as well. I do not know him but he looks like a leader.

They have got a solid base to build from. It is helping them progress at the moment because it gives them the ability to attack teams and score loads of goals.

For a defender to have 7 goals is phenomenal and some of Jullien’s goals have been so important for the club that they have set the tone for the season.
