Partick Thistle could be prickly opponents for Celtic

Hoops may have their work cut out

Partick skipper Abdul Osman will relish the scrap with Celtic
1 of 1

Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership
BT Sport 1, 7.45pm Tuesday

Celtic travel across Glasgow to face Partick as the Ladbrokes Premiership returns after the winter break and the Jags can prove to be troublesome opponents.

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.
