The 18-year-old makes his first competitive start for Brendan Rodgers side against Partick Thistle this evening at Parkhead, with the Northern Irishman looking to strengthen his grip on the Scottish Premiership title.

Having signed a new three-year contract with Celtic back in May, Miller, who is known to play either up-front or left-wing, will start against Thistle at left-back, a position he’s played in during Champions League youth matches.
Miller has been with Celtic since the age of 12, and tonight will no doubt be the greatest Christmas present he or his family could ever hope for – and a great chunk of the Bhoys support is also right behind his selection:
Good luck to bhoys tonight and glad young Calvin miller getting his chance to shine tonight https://t.co/J3IH3ADIbu

Liam Henderson is also handed a chance to impress tonight by Rodgers – so is bringing youth into his squad an important part of being the Celtic manager?
And can Miller stake a claim to stay in the team during the festive period?
