Chris Davies spoke of 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.

The Northern Irishman was appointed as successor to Ronny Deila on May 20, 2016 and around 13,000 turned up at Parkhead three days later to see him being introduced as the new Celtic boss.

Ahead of their Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Partick Thistle at Firhill on Thursday 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 William Hill Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park on May 27.

"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.

"I will never forget the day we came up to see Brendan being unveiled. It was the first time I had been to Celtic Park and when you say it you knew what an amazing club it is.

"We had our dreams and objectives for the season and it has been a special year."
