Derby day in Glasgow today with Celtic looking to keep the unbeaten run going and to be fair to Partick Thistle today they played well, they attacked in numbers and pressed high up the park, as Celtic fans we think we have a divine right to win every game 5-0 and to be all easy, for me if that was the case the league and games would be boring, not that this was game of the year, well so far but we won 1-0, 19 games unbeaten, we are in a GREAT place as a club, I don’t get the moaning, but we all are allowed an opinion, they must be allowed, this is mine

Today Celtic had to fight for the 3 points against a team who, as most do lifted their game at the home of the champions, we do still need creativity in the final third and a striker but to go this long in the league unbeaten we as fans have to be delighted with what we are here to do, support the team on the park

We got the 1-0 win and the goal came on 38 minutes when Ambrose came forward on the right passed the ball inside to Joe Ledley who showed why we need to keep him with a superb shot at least 25 yards out bang into the bottom left of Fox’s goal and a brilliant time to score in any game, just before half time

We went a few games winning heavy and we were all delighted that is a few games now 1-0 and we have to be happy as well at this, we are not playing our best and just won two games where I do believe we would have dropped points last season, again another clean sheet and Lennon must be delighted, with new striker Holmbert Fridjonsson to come into the team and also Tony Watt maybe coming home. We will probably sign a striker and the Japanese trialist for starters so we can only improve from an already decent position

Partick had several chances today and made Forster work hard with some good saves with Celtic having decent chances also. Partick will be unhappy not to take anything from this game but we are champions and we win ugly sometimes and today, like the last game that is what we did

Final score: Celtic 1-0 Partick Thistle

TCN Reported Man of the match: Joe Ledley, great goal and pulled the strings and held tight
