The Celtic XI Rodgers should pick vs. Partick Thistle

Celtic take on Partick Thistle at Celtic Park tonight in a game that could move them a massive 14 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.

The fixture is one rearranged from August and is one of the Hoops’ games in hand over the teams below them.

Although picking up another two victories over the last week, the Bhoys’ performance levels have dipped slightly and Thistle will be keen to find out whether they can capitalise on any complacency creeping in.

Midweek winter games can always be difficult no matter the quality in your side and Celtic will have to apply themselves with determination and desire, or else risk dropping points against a side that hasn’t been them since 1995.

The Bhoys still have four fixtures to play between now and the end of December and that may be reflected in the team selection given some players are looking a little tired.

This is our XI that we think can get the job done vs Partick Thistle…
