Partick Thistle might currently be bottom of the Championship table, but that doesn’t tell the whole story about their recent form.

After a poor start manager Gary Caldwell, the Jags are now unbeaten in their last six games. They have reached the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup and a win in their game in hand will move them off the bottom of the table.

The reason for Thistle’s recent improvements is down to the signings brought in to Firhill during the January transfer window.

One of the key men brought on loan is Celtic goalkeeper Conor Hazard. Hazard has started six games for the Jags, and they have yet to lose one.


He has brought some calmness to a defence which looked frenetic at times, aided by another January signing, centre-back Steven Anderson.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers will be watching Hazard’s progress with interest. There doesn’t seem to be a long-term plan in place for goalkeepers at the Scottish champions.

The Hoops obviously rate Hazard, as he signed a four year deal with the club in 2017.

If Hazard wants to be the number one goalkeeper at Celtic, he has to keep doing what he’s been doing – impressing for the Jags.
