PARTICK THISTLE V CELTIC (SCOTTISH PREMIERSHIP: THURSDAY 18TH MAY; 7:45PM)

Celtic make the short trip to Maryhill to take on Partick Thistle in final away game of the season.

Team Selection: It will be interesting to see if Scott Brown returns to the side after his recent two match suspension, it seems certain that he will get some game time tomorrow. Unfortunately youngster Michael Johnston is injured and can't build on his impressive debut against St Johnstone but there could be a starting role for Anthony Ralston. Tom Rogic should get another start as he continues to get fully fit in time for the Scottish Cup Final and maybe Emilio Izaguirre will get a rare start. James Forrest could be worth a start too, as I imagine Brendan Rodgers will pick a strongish side as the unbeaten season gets closer and closer.

Previous Meetings: A Stuart Armstrong brace was the highlight of a 4-1 victory at Firhill in December

Eleven days later A Scott Sinclair goal was the difference between the teams at Celtic Park

Whilst the sides played out a 1-1 draw at Celtic Park last month

Prediction: This could be a tough game, as Thistle have made it difficult for Celtic this season but with the unbeaten season so tantalisingly close Celtic should have enough to pull out another win.
