Celtic v Partick preview

The Hoops midfielder will sit out the game as he serves a suspension after going through the disciplinary points threshold.
Right-back Mikael Lustig is out for the remainder of the campaign as he continues his rehabilitation from an ankle injury.
The versatile Charlie Mulgrew has returned to training following a hamstring tendon problem, but the game comes too soon for the Scotland international.
Celtic are currently seven points clear of Aberdeen – who host Inverness on Wednesday night – but manager Ronny Deila is not taking anything for granted.
He said: “We have to win more games before we win the league, and I’ve never taken anything for granted in football. If you do that, you can be made to eat your words.
“We’re in a very good position, and we have to enjoy this. But this period is the most important so far.” 
Thistle boss Alan Archibald has doubts over two of his players ahead of the Glasgow derby.
Striker Kris Doolan and midfielder Stevie Lawless will be given fitness checks before the trip to Celtic Park.
Doolan sustained a hamstring injury and wide-man Lawless picked up a knock during the goalless draw against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday.
Defender Dan Seaborne (ankle) remains out along with midfielder Sean Welsh (ankle) and forward Christie Elliott (broken hand).
The Jags go into the match high on confidence having taken 10 points from their last five Scottish Premiership fixtures.
