They shipped three to Dundee and five to Kilmarnock recently but Partick Thistle held it together enough to beat Motherwell last week. They are a team fighting for their livelihoods and bear a grudge over a penalty kick decision when we met earlier this season.
Thistle play the role of whipping boys in many eyes tonight but no game is won before kick-off. Celtic need a response after Sunday’s defeat, which will only come through graft and guile. Patience may be required tonight.
Just as importantly, Brendan Rodgers needs to look at selection. He has three games in the next six days, the middle of which is against nearest challengers, Aberdeen. Freshness is needed for each occasion.
