Chris Davies reflected on a "brilliant" first year as assistant manager to Brendan Rodgers at Celtic as the Hoops hope to finish the domestic season unbeaten and with a treble.

Ahead of their Scottish Premiership clash with Partick Thistle at Firhill tomorrow night, the champions are 44 domestic games unbeaten since the start of the campaign and would complete the clean sweep with victory over Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park on May 27.

It represents a remarkable first season season for Rodgers, who took over from Ronny Deila on May 20, 2016 with around 13,000 fans turning up to Parkhead three days later to welcome him to the club.

"We knew what a big club Celtic was before we came and it hasn't disappointed," said Davies.

"We have had a brilliant year here professionally and personally and there is still a lot more to come.

"We have a big couple of weeks coming up but it has been a brilliant year.

"What we want to do is give the fans a team they are proud of, that is all you want to do at a football club and I think we have done that this year and we want to keep doing that."
