Celtic: Fans react to Christopher Jullien’s comments on Alfredo Morelos’ attempted provocation

Celtic defender Christopher Jullien has casually dismissed the attempts of striker Alfredo Morelos to wind him up during last weekend’s Glasgow derby.

The Twitter channel of Clyde 1 football phone-in show Superscoreboard (@ClydeSSB) posted remarks from Jullien in which he said that he enjoyed Morelos’ attempted provocation at Ibrox last Sunday.

According to planetradio.co.uk, Morelos appeared to be looking for a reaction from the 26-year-old when he trod on his foot while waiting for a free kick to be taken, but Jullien shrugged it off as “trash talk” and “part of the game“. He was even quoted as telling Morelos “I like that so keep going“.

The striker repeatedly fell foul to indiscipline last season, being sent off no fewer than five occasions – one of which came after elbowing Scott Brown in a 2-1 derby defeat to Celtic in March, as reported by The Sun.

These Celtic fans on Twitter hailed Jullien and taunted Morelos following Sunday’s derby:
