Celtic moved 11 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a come from behind 2-1 win over Partick Thistle.
Brendan Rodgers kept faith with the team which defeated Brechin on Saturday, making no changes which meant that Odsonne Edouard was the lone striker and Leigh Griffths and Moussa Dembele were on the bench.
The Hoops began the game quite well, before a mistake by Lustig lead to the opening goal of the game as he pulled back Miles Storey in the penalty box, Thistle striker Conor Sammon converted the penalty to give the Jags the lead.

The Hoops equalised in the 55th minute, Scott Sinclair winning and then converting a penalty.
Griffiths completed the turnaround in the 70th minute as he scored his 11th goal of a truncated season.
