Celtic travel to Motherwell on Saturday lunchtime on matchday seven of the cinch Scottish Premiership season.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are top of the table after collecting 16 points from 18 available thus far – winning all but one of their opening six matches with a goalless draw at home to St Johnstone on August 26 the only blot on the report card thus far.

The defending champions face a Motherwell side who have lost their last two matches – away to Rangers and home to St Mirren – to drop down to fourth in the standings after an impressive start to the season that saw them pick up three victories and a draw in their first four games.

The Steelmen were impressive in their 1-0 defeat at Ibrox last weekend – such was their dominance that Rangers were booed off the park by their own fans despite the victory – and manager Stuart Kettlewell will hope for a similar performance but a better outcome against the league leaders at Fir Park.
