Celtic v Motherwell starting XIs confirmed ahead of Premiership clash

Motherwell make the trip to Celtic Park this afternoon in the final Premiership fixture of the weekend and the team news is in from Glasgow’s East End ahead of the 3pm kickoff.

Fir Park striker Tony Watt is the Scottish Premiership’s top scorer and has hit the net in back-to-back league fixtures, scoring nine goals in 17 appearances so far this season in the league, and he could make it double figures this afternoon against his former club.

However, Motherwell’s recent impressive performances have them sitting fourth in the table and a win this afternoon would see them close the gap on Hearts in third place after they faced Rangers at Tynecastle earlier today.
