AARON TAYLOR-SINCLAIR has vowed that speculation linking him with a move to Celtic will not undermine his form for Partick Thistle.

Reports suggest the Hoops have been monitoring the flying full-back's form.

And although the 22-year-old - who started Saturday's abandoned game with St Johnstone at Firhill - admits he is flattered by the reported Celtic interest, he says it is not a distraction.

Taylor-Sinclair said: "I am not sure if Celtic have spoken with my agent but I have heard there is an interest and that is flattering.

"Celtic are the biggest club in the country but I can't let that distract me. As long as I am a Thistle player I will be giving everything in a Partick shirt.

"Whether that is until the end of the season or not I don't know, but nothing is going to stop me doing my best for Thistle. They have been a great club to me and they will get nothing but my best."

Thistle are without a win in seven SPFL Premiership home games and the Jags' defensive stalwart says the abandonment on Saturday, due to a waterlogged pitch, was particularly frustrating.

Taylor-Sinclair added: "Our home record has been poor and we were really fired up to get the win and the conditions were such a frustration.

"Our Firhill record is the one thing that has let us down this season and it would have been great to get that win on Saturday. But I think the ref got it right."
