Partick face Celtic backlash in Betfred Cup
Brendan Rodgers under fire
Betfred Cup last 16
BT Sport 1, 12.30pm Saturday
Celtic won't play Champions League football this season and there have been recriminations flying around all week for both the board and, for the first time, manager Brendan Rodgers.
The defeat at AEK Athens was the first time he had ever tasted two defeats in a row as Hoops boss, but newly-relegated Ladbrokes Championship Glasgow neighbours Partick Thistle are unlikely to make it three.
It's a free hit for the great unpredictables of Scottish football, but they should be outclassed by a Celtic side who will want to hit the Jags with a quick backlash.
Celtic-Celtic double result
2pts 5-6 Coral, Ladbrokes
Manager Alan Archibald has no new injury concerns.
The Bhoys are still without Nir Bitton. Dedryck Boyata is unlikely to feature after reports he refused to play in Greece. Odsonne Edouard is out with a hamstring strain.
Partick Thistle last beat Celtic at Firhill in a 1-0 win in 1994.
