Tam McManus criticises Celtic defender Christopher Jullien during Livingston draw

Tam McManus delivered a harsh response on social media towards Celtic defender Christopher Jullien during his performance on Wednesday night in the draw against Livingston.

Neil Lennon’s side left it late to rescue a 2-2 away draw against Livingston, as substitute Tom Rogic fired in an equaliser in stoppage time for the visitors to move them 13 points clear of second-placed Rangers.

The Bhoys had taken the lead through Callum McGregor, but found themselves in the unfamiliar position of being behind when the hosts fired in twice.

There was a total lack of organisation at the back from Celtic for Jon Guthrie’s goal, while Scott Robinson also scored at the beginning of the second-half for Livingston.

Celtic’s colossus centre-back Jullien should be left disappointed for his role in Livingston’s second, as he was dribbled past by Lyndon Dykes in the build up and struggled against the forward in the contest.

McManus, who is a former Hibernian striker and now a BBC Sport pundit, was critical of Jullien for his latest display in midweek.

TBR’s View:

Jullien, 26, will learn a lot from his latest outing and certainly has the potential to improve as a player.

He is a no-nonsense French centre-back that has been a brilliant success during his first season so far at Parkhead and the fact he’s chipped in with seven goals across all competitions is astonishing.

But there are still areas of his defensive game that need brushing up and he had one of his rare poorer nights against Livingston.
