Celtic’s domestic supremacy continues this season too as they clinched the Scottish League Cup trophy, their first title of the new campaign, defeating Motherwell last Sunday. The Hoops, however, encountered The Steelmen for the third time within a week following a hard-fought 1-1 draw this midweek. Their Saturday afternoon opponents at Celtic Park almost drew an end to Brendan Rodgers’ unbeaten domestic run on Wednesday night but failed to hold the lead as Scott Sinclair scored a late equalizer for the Hoops.
The trilogy had its final showdown and the hosts were confident of snatching a win this time against Motherwell in order to extend the gap with second-placed Aberdeen in Scottish Premiership table. The game, however, proved to be a stroll in the park for the Bhoys who grabbed a thumping 5-1 win at Celtic Park.
Below are the Celtic FC players rated from their win against Motherwell.
Craig Gordon: 6
Was troubled by substitute Elliott Frear who scored early in the second half and forced the veteran custodian to make a decent stop towards the end. Gordon was mostly untested otherwise.
Mikael Lustig: 7
Scored an own goal against their today’s opponent in midweek that almost caused his side their first domestic defeat in Brendan Rodgers’ era. Lustig, however, was pretty decent this afternoon as he kept on combining up front with Jonny Hayes and later James Forrest down the right-hand flank. Also whipped in few decent crosses inside the box.
Made some rusty tackles at times but the Norwegian youngster made a solid defensive impact alongside Boyata.
