The centre-back gave an update about his status and urged the fans to stay safe and follow expert advice during a conversation with Celtic TV.   

“Everything is fine here. I’m with my kid and my girl. We’re getting used to it. I know it’s difficult for everyone but we’re just trying to keep busy and see what will happen next,” Jullien said.

The 27-year-old also said that he has been in constant touch with his family back in France.

“I’ve spoken to a lot of friends and family. It’s still the same for them over there in France. They’re locked down as well and trying to do the best they can.”

“It’s difficult for everyone to stay in the house every day. It’s hard to get used to that new life, but all my family and friends know the risks and what could happen so we’re all obeying the guidance,” he explained.

Jullien has been making the best use of his free time at home by training alone and added that the rest of his members from the Celtic family have been trying to adjust to the new circumstances and routines.
