Brendan Rodgers’ men fell to third in the Premiership ladder as a consequence since Rangers saw off Hamilton later that day.

The reigning champions are, however, still in the driving seat with a game in hand on bitter rivals Gers with only one point separating the two sides at the top of the table.

The Bhoys will be hoping to return to the winning ways on Wednesday evening when they play host to Motherwell at Celtic Park.

The gulf in quality between the two sides is massive and the hoists are heavy favourites, but they will need to justify the tag on the court against the bottom-half opposition.

Celtic made it to the knockout phase of Europa League in spite of losing 1-2 to Salzburg at home six days ago.

Celtic vs Motherwell: Head-to-head

The Bhoys were the dominant force in the history of head to head affairs with the Well.

They won 35, drew 6 and lost only 4 of 93 meetings with Motherwell.

Celtic only won three and drew three of past six encounters with the Well, though.

None of past three head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored.

Celtic vs Motherwell: Prediction

The visitors went nine points clear off bottom two sides Dundee and St. Mirren after a surprising 1-2 away victory over St. Johnstone on Saturday.

Tom Aldred and Daniel Johnson stroke two early goals at McDiarmid Park, while Mark Gillespie denied Matthew Kennedy’s penalty later on in the first half.

The Saints, who were previously unbeaten in nine straight affairs, could only pull off a consolation through Jason Kerr late in the game.

The Well conceded 19 goals in 9 games on the road in this term of Premiership. They’ll be up against a highly motivated opposition in mid-week and we do believe Celtic will bounce back from recent failures to pick up a comprehensive victory in front of their fans here.
