Celtic have opened up a gap on Old Firm rivals Rangers in the Scottish Premiership by defeating Livingston 4-0. The Bhoys, facing the only side to have beaten them in the league this season, but in a strong display with goals from Odsonne Edouard, Scott Brown and a brace from James Forrest enough for all three points.
It was a welcome win for Celtic following that defeat last month and one in which several players received plenty of praise.
One such player was French defender Christopher Jullien. He struggled in the last meeting between these two sides, with imposing Australian striker Lyndon Dykes causing problems for the Celtic defender throughout the Almondvale meeting.
But on this occasion, Jullien put in a far more composed display.
The summer signing from Toulouse was much more dominant in his defending and was also at his usual best with the ball at his feet as Celtic sauntered to a win.
Celtic fans have, by and large, been very impressed with Jullien since his summer arrival but the Livingston game was one of his less impressive performances so far. That has now been confined to history by this much-improved display and Celtic fans are certainly pleased that is the case.
Outstanding today big man

Struggling to think of a CB we have had in recent years who can hit a long pass as sweet as Christopher Jullien does. Better passer than VVD. It’s like he sees the game from 100 yards above it. #CELTIC #CELLIV

Frimpong is a legend in the making, Jullien got booted up and down but didn’t rise to it, Forrest superb, another stellar performance, yet the panic merchants would say otherwise. Once again another win closer to domestic success, suck it up 🍀

Jullien looked like he had a point to prove today, he was solid 💪
Tam Rogic showed signs of his old self.
Taylor has to be ahead of Hayes.
Eddy just does Eddy things 😎
Frimpong gets better every game.
Forrest is irreplaceable.
Griffiths being back for December is huge!

It has to be said. Christopher Jullien is a colossus.
But if anyone with an English accent asks, them he is crap- folds under pressure and has a bad knee.
