Celtic return to action in the Scottish Cup, taking on Partick Thistle as they attempt to bounce back from the 1-0 loss to Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership.
The Hoops had been in good form before the loss to Killie, winning six games out of the previous seven, but Brendan Rodgers’ side never got going and deservedly lost on the day.
The Hoops will be looking to bounce back from the loss and install some confidence in the side ahead of the upcoming Europa League last 32 clash against Zenit.
Rodgers could well make a few changes to the first-team, but maybe not as many as people were expecting, but that is mostly down to injuries and players being cuptied.
