Celtic extended their lead at the top of the Premiership to 14 points with victory over Partick Thistle, their 16th win in 17 league matches this season and their 12th in a row. But the convincing win expected given the teams’ respective league positions – Partick are bottom of the table with just three wins – did not materialise. Partick might have come away with something had they taken their chances.Scott Sinclair scored the only goal in the 17th minute at Celtic Park, his 11th of the season. The former Chelsea and Manchester City forward was quickest on to Liam Henderson’s low free-kick across the area and scooped a smart first-time effort past Tomas Cerny in the Partick goal.
