Celtic: Fans forgive Christopher Jullien after nearly scoring at the wrong end against Hibernian - Celtic

It was business as usual for Celtic as they maintained their two-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a win over Hibernian on Sunday – though they could have been in for a nervy finish if Christopher Jullien had headed into his own net late on.
