Celtic Away Days – Motherwell Preview

16 October 2021

Celtic return to league action this afternoon with an away trip to Fir Park to take on Motherwell.

We finally won an away league game before the international break, albeit against a struggling Aberdeen team however we must hope that the team has turned a corner and get a win against a decent Motherwell team.

Motherwell are a point ahead of Celtic and two positions above the hoops in the league table. Former Celtic striker, Tony Watt has scored 4 goals in 8 games and his strike partner Dutchman, Kevin van Veen has fast become a favourite for the Steelmen.

All the teams above Celtic play each other this weekend, Rangers play Hearts, Dundee United play Hibs and we play Motherwell, so could be a chance if we win that we move up the division and close the gap at the top.


Celtic really need to push on from the Aberdeen win and now is the time to put a run together until the next international break to give us a chance of reclaiming the league title.

We have players returning from injury and hopefully we can have a settled team and watch some good football and win games.


Mick Kane hails from Glasgow. He has been hooked on Celtic since he went to his first game when he was 7. Celtic beat Hamilton 8-3 at Celtic Park on the 3rd of January 1987. His favourite player at the time, Brian McClair scored four goals.

He started going regular as a 16 year old when Celtic played at Hampden for the season, being a Southsider it meant a short train journey to get to Hampden. From then he has had a season ticket travelled around Europe for games as Celtic became the dominant force in Scottish football again. A nice change from growing up during Rangers run to 9 in a row.
