Rodgers has made wholesales changes to his side to face Partick after securing the league title against Hearts on Sunday.
Erik Sviatchenko, Cristian Gamboa, Eboue Kouassi, Nir Bitton and Emilio Izaguirre all return to the starting line-up.
Celtic can once again move 25 points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a victory, but that will not worry the Parkhead faithful who will be in full party mode since securing their sixth consecutive title in a row on Sunday.
However the Hoops will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten domestic record this season.
They have dropped just four points all season.
In other Celtic news, the club is reportedly in talks to sign this Champions League midfielder.
