It's No For Me: A Celtic-Motherwell Preview

Tom Rogic celebrates his last minute winner against Motherwell in December

Celtic continue in our quest to break records and hearts with a league game - on a Saturday at 3pm! - at home to laughing boy Mark McGhee's Motherwell.

Team Selection: With Stuart Armstrong back in the squad I would expect him starting in place of Nir Bitton to be the only change to the team with hammered Inverness 6-0 last week. Moussa Dembele will attempting to score three hat-tricks in three games to add yet more pounds to his transfer fee.

Previous Matches: Our first meeting in October was a relatively comfortable 2-0 win at Celtic Park, the goals coming from Sinclair and Dembele. The return match at Fir Park in December was a completely different story, as Celtic rallied from 2-0 and 3-2 down to eventually win 4-3 with a last minute winner from the much missed Tom Rogic. Oh, and Mark McGhee caused a 'scene' before the game.

Prediction: Miserable McGhee will be out to prove a point after Motherwell's 7-2 loss to Aberdeen on Wednesday, but Celtic will eventually find a breakthrough and will run out comfortable winners, with yet more goals for Dembele in the offing.
