The last-gasp winning header from Jullien also praised Ryan Christie.

Jullien told Celtic’s Youtube channel: “I felt great. Ryan and I speak a lot in training about that ball I want in the perfect spot.

“If it is in a good spot I think I will be there and tonight the ball he gave me was just a gift.

“We were waiting for that. It was a really good job by the team.

“The fans had our back and the atmosphere was unbelievable. I am just so happy to give that to the fans and the club.

“It was unbelievable. That was a great night and a great win.

“We were a bit upset after the first half, to be 1-0 down after all the chances we had.

“But the reaction the team showed was big and great for the games to come.”
