  1. Five more Premiership games on Saturday

    A quick reminder before we go tonight of what's coming your way tomorrow.

    Five more Premiership games, all 15:00 kick-offs, the highlight of which could be Neil Lennon taking his Hibernian side to Ibrox - the clubs' first meeting since Hibs beat Rangers 3-2 in that remarkable 2016 Scottish Cup final.

    There's also Hamilton v Dundee, Kilmarnock v Hearts, Ross County v Aberdeen and St Johnstone v Motherwell. Plus full programmes in the Championship, League One and League Two.

    Join us here and on Sportsound from 14:00 BST for that little lot.

    Meantime, thanks for your company and a very good night.

  2. Rodgers happy with Celtic 'resilience'

    FT: Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    More from Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers on his team's 1-0 victory.

    "It is a difficult place to come, especially early in the season. Alan [Archibald] got his team well organised but we had a lot of control of the ball, we created chances but we didn't really have a finishing touch tonight.

    "We will play better, of course - we were outstanding in the week [the 5-0 win over Kilmarnock] - but tonight is a game we will look back on at the end of the season and hopefully say it was a good three points.

    "We could have been more comfortable in the game if we had put our chances away, but when it is still 1-0 you have to defend, and I thought the players were comfortable even though there was bit of pressure around our 18-yard box.

    "We didn't quite perform as well as I would want - our standards are much higher than we showed - but it shows the resilience in the team to get the result tonight."

  3. Was it a penalty?

    FT: Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers on Radio Scotland: "I would have to see it again but from where I was, I thought Nir [Bitton] got a toe to it, and he was the right side of the defender.

    "The pitch was maybe a bit slippy at that stage which is perhaps why the boy went down, but the ref was in a great position and he didn't give it."

    Unsurprisingly, Thistle boss Alan Archibald took a different view.

    "Yeh, I think so. It is certainly a foul anywhere else on the pitch. It is a big call, against Celtic, in the last minute of the game.

    "You don't often get them. We had a penalty the other night, and we only usually get one a a year, so we're not going to get two in four days."

  4. 'Big penalty call by the ref'

    Quote Message: I thought it was a penalty. Bitton took a little chance and I thought he caught Storey when he nipped in front of him. I would like to see it again, but it was a big call by the ref
  5. FULL-TIME - Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    So Celtic survive, and it's two wins out for two for the Scottish champions, who extend their unbeaten domestic run to 51 matches.

    That's two defeats out of two for Thistle, who can consider themselves a touch hard done by.

  6. Thistle denied penalty claim

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Three minutes of injury time signalled. Surely a penalty for Thistle? No! Referee Andrew Dallas deems Nir Bitton's challenge on Miles Storey accidental, but it looked pretty clear-cut to everyone else.

    "It looked like a stonewall penalty to me," says ex-Thistle boss Ian McCall on radio Scotland. "I can't disagree," says Pat Bonner.

  7. CLOSE!

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic break and Leigh Griffiths zones in on goal. He gets a shot away with his left foot but a great challenge from Niall Keown's timely challenge concedes a corner.

  8. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Loose play from Celtic captain Scott Brown, who concedes an unnecessary corner by over-playing his hand.

    Can Thistle capitalise and force an equaliser? Er, no. Chris Erskine's corner floats harmlessly over everyone.


    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Kieran Tierney, exemplary for most of the evening, blots his copybook slightly by picking up a late booking for impeding Thistle's Ryan Edwards.

  10. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Quote Message: Throwing Connor Sammon right up top and getting the ball forward from back to front as quickly as possible might be Thistle's best bet in this last five minutes from Ian McCall Ex-Thistle boss Ian McCall on Radio Scotland

  11. Final change for Thistle

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Last throw of the dice from Alan Archibald, sending Andy McCarthy on for the tiring Stuart Bannigan.

  12. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Nearly a disaster for Thistle debutant Connor Sammon, who diverts a Celtic corner back towards his own goal, but it is cleared off the line.

  13. CLOSE!

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    James Forrest drives forward through the middle, feeds Tom Rogic outside him on the left. The Aussie lets fly with his left foot, but hits the side-netting. Still 1-0...

    James Forrest controls the ball for Celtic

  14. Armstrong on for Celtic

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Jozo Simunovic is unhappy after conceding a free-kick for catching Ryan Edwards on the back of his ankle, but it comes to nothing. The Croat is then forced into a change of shirt, with blood spattering his original.

    Celtic make their final substitution, Stuart Armstrong - subject of recent transfer speculation linking him with a move to Southampton - on for Olivier Ntcham.


    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Thistle's Stuart Bannigan is the first man into the book, sticking out a leg to bring James Forrest's run to a halt.

  16. CLOSE!

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Jozo Simunovic gets decent power on a header from a Leigh Griffiths corner, but Thistle's Callum Booth heads it away off his own line.

  17. Post update

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic's Leigh Griffiths gets free down the right and pulls the ball back for Tom Rogic, but a defender does just enough to put the Aussie off, and he blazes wide.

  18. Erskine on for Thistle

    Partick Thistle 0-1 Celtic

    Thistle boss Alan Archibald responds by sending on his own talisman, Chris Erskine, who has scored twice in the past week. He replaces Steven Lawless.
