Forster, signed on loan from Premier League club Southampton in the summer transfer window, made a number of brilliant saves between the posts, while 26-year-old central defender Jullien - who moved to the Hoops from Toulouse in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by The Scottish Sun to be worth £7 million - was very good defensively.

 

Lennon has praised the 31-year-old England international goalkeeper and 26-year-old French central defender.

Lennon told BBC Sport: "My goalkeeper made some great saves, which he is paid to do and he's done before.

“My centre-half Jullien was incredible, and then we have the quality players going forward.”
