A player of his clear talent needs to be playing, so Celtic will surely try to bring him back, the only danger is that his performances may have generated interest from the English Premier League, and Man City may want to see what he can do on loan in the league they play in.

Partick Thistle boss Alan Archibald admitted his side were fortunate to escape with only the loss of five goals.

"And they showed their qualities and professionalism tonight".
