Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson has hit back at critics of side after they scored a controversial goal against Celtic.

Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain claimed that the Motherwell players should have been ‘embarrassed‘. Now Robinson is having his say on the matter.

“I didn’t hear what Scott Bain said, I’m not really too interested in what Scott Bain said, to be honest, it doesn’t bother me” he told STV.

“It won’t have any effect us. Let me say one thing, the hypocrisy in sport is laughable.”

Motherwell were on a great run of form before losing 4-1 to Celtic, winning six league games in a row. It will be a test for Robinson to pick his young side back up from the criticism of the incident. And also the manner of the defeat, which must have stung.

The good thing about young players though is that they can be fearless and Robinson will be hoping the players shrug off the defeat and focus on Wednesday’s game against Kilmarnock.

Killie are in a very poor run of form, with no wins in seven games. It will still be a tough ask for the Steelmen to pick up the three points they require to keep alive their hopes of a top six finish.
