A defeat to Livingston was far from ideal for Motherwell– but Jermaine Hylton reckons Celtic provide a good opportunity to put that game to bed.

The Steelmen come into tonight’s match with Celtic off the back of a 1-0 Livi defeat. If it wasn’t for Mark Gillespie, the scoreline may have been harsher on the Well after the Geordie pulled out four or five top saves.

Celtic comes next though so there’s no time for contemplating that defeat too much. A big victory over Neil Lennon’s side would potentially put the Well six points clear in third.

 

For claret and amber winger Hylton though, it’s all about putting Saturday behind them as they look to cause Celtic trouble: “You want the next game to come as quick as possible after a game like Saturday. Celtic is a massive game, big crowds, I am looking forward to it.

“Any game is a perfect opportunity to put the last one behind you. I’ve been really enjoying the season so far and we’re looking to finish as high as possible. We’re all very competitive.

“I’m really enjoying the people here and the relationships I’ve built. It’s definitely got a family feel to the club.”
