Tom Rogic is in talks with Celtic over a new contract

By Emma Sanders

Celtic could be without Tom Rogic in addition to James Forrest and Kieran Tierney for the latest Scottish Premiership fixture against Patrick Thistle on Tuesday evening.

According to the Daily Record, Rogic picked up an ankle injury in the second-half of Saturday’s victory and faces a late fitness test ahead of the mid-week fixture.

Winger Forrest and left-back Tierney remain sidelined and are not expected to feature.

The Hoops will be boosted by the return of skipper Scott Brown after the midfielder was forced to miss the 2-1 victory against Dundee on Saturday afternoon.

Celtic could extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership by 14 points with victory against the bottom-of-the-table side on Tuesday.

Brendan Rodgers side have been in sensational form and they have picked up 16 victories in their last 17 domestic fixtures, remaining unbeaten throughout the 2016-17 campaign.

They have already been tipped to finish the season without defeat and go into Tuesday’s clash against Patrick Thistle as resounding favourites.

The Hoops recorded a 2-1 victory against Dundee on the weekend but didn’t look on top of their game, though they were still able to grind out a comfortable win.

Goals from Leigh Griffiths and Nir Bitton helped them on their way but earlier this week, Patrick Thistle boss Alan Archibald claimed Celtic could show signs of strain following pressure to remain unbeaten.

In other Celtic news, this midfielder has been offered a deal after the Hoops step-up their interest.
