Partick Thistle could be prickly opponents for Celtic
Hoops may have their work cut out
Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership
BT Sport 1, 7.45pm Tuesday
Brendan Rodgers has yet to make a real splash in the transfer window - his only eligible signing so far, defender Marvin Compper, is injured.
With striker Moussa Dembele's 'head turned' according to his manager, it's not the worst time to play the champions.
Alan Archibald's Thistle have gradually improved and can be a tough nut to crack, especially with striker Connor Sammon in good form and the return of steely captain Abdul Osman.
Thistle should have enough about them to be backed on the match handicap with a two-goal start.

Thistle are without the injured Christie Elliott.
The Hoops are missing new signing Marvin Compper, Patrick Roberts, Tom Rogic and Jonny Hayes.
Thistle last beat Celtic at Firhill 24 years ago.
