BRENDAN RODGERS will be looking for a big reaction to Sunday's shocker – and Partick Thistle could suffer as a result.

Always beware a wounded animal and after being savaged 4-0 at Hearts the champs have the perfect opponents to bounce back against.

Rodgers is likely to make several changes – especially with Aberdeen to follow on Saturday – and this could freshen up the side.

The unbeaten run – ended at 69 – was beginning to be a noose around Celtic's neck and could play with a bit more freedom tonight.

Thistle are rock bottom and will be without the likes of Stuart Bannigan, Callum Booth, Mustapha Dumbuya, Christie Elliott and Abdul Osman.

The Jags have lost 20 of their last 21 meetings so I expect Celtic to win convincingly.

Bookies know it too and best price on a home win is about 1-9 with the draw 12-1. The Jags are 40-1 at betfair – and 75-1 with McBookie to win 1-0 which statistically is the result if there's a huge shock.

Edouard Odsonne could start and after his recent hat-trick against Motherwell is 11-4 at McBookie to score first.

Celtic -1 is 4-11 at Ladbrokes while Paddy Power offer evens for -2 and that seems reasonable considering the Jags crashed 3-0 at Dundee at the weekend.

If it's business as usual for last season's invincibles then a 4-0 or 5-0 win isn't out of the question. To win to nil the Hoops are  6-10 with William Hill.

Some will fancy both to score which is a big price at 2-1 with Marathonbet but I'd want to see line-ups before considering it. Rodgers is bound to make defensive changes and Dorus de Vries could be in goal.

Over 2.5 goals should come in at 4-9 with Ladbrokes while over 3.5 pays 10-9 at 188Bet.
