Celtic are set to receive a timely boost with the return of Christopher Jullien.
The Frenchman has been out for almost a year after suffering cruciate ligament damage against Dundee United in December 2020.
Jullien collided with the post at Celtic Park in the 3-0 win and has been out ever since – watching the Bhoys’ season implode under Neil Lennon.
It has been a long road for the great defender, but, according to the Scottish Sun, Jullien could be back on the Hoops field by the end of the year.
Parkhead’s new boss Ange Postecoglou has leaned on Carl Starfelt and young Cameron Carter-Vickers and Stephen Welsh at center since taking the reins from the Celts.

The experienced Jullien, 28, would therefore be an excellent option to seek out.
Still, to play under Postecoglou, the Sun claim Jullien could even be back in green and white by the end of the month.
A comeback before December would be a huge boost for the Hoops if they pursue Premiership leaders and Old Firm rivals Rangers while trying to keep their European hopes alive.
Jullien is back in training at Lennoxtown and hopes to appear before the end of the month.
