Celtic moved 14 points clear of Rangers at the top of the table with yet another win in the Premiership. Scott Sinclair scored in his first start since returning from injury in the 14th minute to win the game for the Hoops. Partick Thistle started the game really well, though. They had two chances early on, forcing Craig Gordon into saves but posed little threat for the remainder of the game.
Sinclair’s 11th goal of the season handed the Bhoys all three points in a game where Celtic were not truly at their best. Youngster Liam Henderson took a quick training ground free-kick from the wide area, rolling it along the box to the winger who did not fail to convert the chance. Celtic academy graduate Calvin Miller made his full debut for his boyhood club and had an impressive showing. This loss stretches Partick thistle’s winless run to seven games and they remain at the bottom of the table.
Here are the Celtic player ratings from their narrow win against Partick Thistle.
Craig Gordon: 7/10
Needed to make some saves early on. Could only watch as Ziggy Gordon fired wide of the left-hand post.
Cristian Gamboa: 7/10
Bombed forward on a regular basis. Defended well too. A foul on him earned Celtic the free-kick that led to their only goal. Always looked positive on the overlap.
Jozo Simunovic: 5.5/10
Lost possession sloppily and could have cost Celtic an early goal. Came back to his best after a few mistakes. Passed well.
Mikael Lustig: 6.5/10
Came out of the defence on occasions. Passed well. Was pretty good defensively.
Calvin Miller: 7/10
The debutant looked very composed on the ball. Had a shot on target. Linked really well with Roberts and Henderson.
Scott Brown: 7/10
Stamped his control in the middle of the park. Controlled the game. Passing was brilliant from the skipper.
Liam Henderson: 7/10
Looked pretty solid in the middle of the park. Almost set up Miller for a goal.
Patrick Roberts: 7/10
Was full of creativity. Came close to scoring but Cerny did well to deny him.
Callum McGregor: 8/10
Was really lively throughout the game. Movement was good. Made several key passes.
Scott Sinclair: 7/10
Made his first start after his comeback from injury and scored the only goal in the game.
Moussa Dembele: 6/10
Was denied twice as his goal drought stretched to six games. Was subbed off.
Emilio Izaguirre: 6/10
Did nothing wrong after replacing young Miller at left-back.
Stuart Armstrong: NA
Leigh Griffiths: NA
