After suffering a disastrous early exit in the Champions League in mid-week, Celtic got back to winning ways with a routine 3-0 victory over Motherwell on Sunday afternoon.
Neil Lennon’s side took the lead thanks to a late first-half strike from James Forrest, before Albian Ajeti and Christopher Jullien wrapped things up in the closing stages of the contest.
How’s your Celtic knowledge? Always been a loyal fan? Well can you spot Stilian Petrov from John Hartson? Give it a go if you’re brave enough …

And after the game, it was Jullien’s performance who Celtic fans seemed to be very impressed by. Aside from his well-taken finish in injury time, the centre-back also made two tackles, two interceptions and completed seven of his ten attempted long balls.
The Frenchman didn’t looked too troubled on Saturday by the Motherwell strikers, and after helping to keep another clean sheet in the Scottish Premiership, Celtic supporters took to Twitter to hail the 27-year-old.

Some fans even claimed that the centre-back is a better finisher than Patryk Klimala, who missed two official big chances according to Sofascore before eventually being hooked for Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Coming up against a side rooted at the bottom of the table always seemed like a home banker for the Hoops, and that turned out to be the case.
With Odsonne Edouard again missing from the starting line-up, it was up to the rest of his Celtic teammates to step up, and whilst they may have let the club down on Wednesday night against Ferencvaros, they clawed back some pride with their performance at the weekend.
The race for the title promises to be a good one.
