  2. Henderson 'brilliant' - Rodgers

    FT: Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers praised 18-year-old Ewan Henderson for his full debut.

    "We had to put every ounce of energy and spirit into the game and at 2-1 there’s always the chance something could go against you," said Rodgers.

    "I thought Ewan Henderson was outstanding, a young player that’s still got a lot of physical maturity to take place but his composure on the ball, his touch and his ability to intercept and defend was there, so rightly he got man of the match.

    "At 18 he’s a big talent. His view of the game is really special, he understands football. Brilliant performance by him."

  3. 'Disappointing act on a football pitch' - Rodgers

    FT: Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Brendan Rodgers was disappointed with James Scott's actions that led to Motherwell's goal.

    "It was a really disappointing act on a football pitch," the Celtic manager told BBC Sportsound.

    "My players, they’ve had a tough game on Thursday [losing 1-0 to Valencia], playing virtually an hour with 10 men, coming into a tough game today, against a team that's doing very well, go 2-0 up, good goals, good quality, so to have that control in the game, then to have that goal against you.

    "Sometimes the referees up here have criticism but today the criticism goes to players because it wasn’t a good act at all.

    "And Motherwell have the chance to redeem themselves and maybe let us score but it isn’t the case, they want to play on and push for an equaliser.

    "And that’s why I’m so proud of the team, they then showed not just qualities, but guts, determination, players out of position and young players like Ewan Henderson - to get on and get the 4-1 win I'm so proud of them."

  4. Scott 'got caught up in the occasion'

    FT: Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson also commented on the controversial goal for the Steelmen after James Scott played on from a throw-in when Celtic were expecting the ball back and it eventually led to Gboly Ariyibi finding the net.

    "In truth, I didn't know what to do," Robinson said. "You've got a young boy, starting his first game, 18 years of age, on a couple of hundred quid a week, great prospect, super, super boy that we have real high hopes for.

    "He got caught up in the occasion. It shouldn't have happened but it did and he'll recover from that. He's going to be a top, top footballer.

    "It'll deflect from how good a performance we put in. There's so many good things in that game. Did we deserve to lose 4-1? No, we didn't."

  5. Motherwell 'extremely worried' about McHugh

    FT: Celtic 2-1 Motherwell

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson provided an updated on the neck injury sustained by Carl McHugh, telling BBC Scotland: "It's a little bit of a disaster for us.

    "He's been knocked out cold. He's on his way to hospital now to have his neck scanned. We're extremely worried about him. He won't play for the foreseeable future."

  6. More to Rangers than Morelos - Gerrard

    FT: Hamilton 0-5 Rangers

    Rangers players "stepped up" without talisman Alfredo Morelos, said manager Steven Gerrard as they hammered Hamilton 5-0 earlier today.

  9. 'Celtic's goals top drawer'

    FT: Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Scott McDonald

    Former Celtic striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: It was a great game, I really enjoyed it. Motherwell did really well up until the Tom Aldred injury, then Celtic took control and all four of their goals were top drawer, really class goals - the crosses and the way they were executed

  10. Celtic’s class comes to the fore

    FT: Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Had Motherwell gone on to take anything from the game, the controversy over the Gboly Ariyibi goal would have raged long and hard. As it was, it was academic, Celtic’s class coming to the fore with those late goals from their record signing, Odsonne Edouard, and the most expensive Scottish player ever, Oliver Burke.

  11. Premiership unchanged at the top

    So there's no change at the top of the Scottish Premiership with Celtic ending the weekend as they started it with an eight-point lead over Rangers after both sides won today.

    Aberdeen, having won yesterday, are five points off Rangers but four points clear of Kilmarnock.

    Motherwell's run of six straight wins comes to an end but they are still within touching distance of the top six - two points below Hibernian.

    Hamilton, meanwhile, remain second bottom - below Dundee on goal difference and four points clear of St Mirren.

  12. 'Deserved Celtic win'

    FT: Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Celtic overall, from that first half performance, deserved to win. I thought Motherwell had a chance in that second half when it went to 2-1. Celtic had lost their way a little bit, they weren't in control, it maybe just took one or two more efforts on goal then because I don't think they really tested Scott Bain
  13. FULL-TIME Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Celtic re-establish their eight-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership after another comfortable win but there was stage in the game when it was not so comfortable.

    Motherwell's controversial goal had no bearing on the final outcome in the end but will no doubt be a talking point in the aftermath.

    The nine minutes of added time came after a lengthy injury stoppage involving Carl McHugh, who was taken off on a stretcher, while the hosts also had an enforced change with Ryan Christie going off.

    Both sides play again in midweek with Celtic away to Hearts and Motherwell visiting Kilmarnock.

  15. 'Mistake from Dunne's square pass'

    Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Brilliant finish again - but Charles Dunne, that was a square pass mistake, it allows James Forrest to pick up the ball and lay it off to Olliver Burke who bent it round the goalkeeper, who had no chance
  16. Post update

    Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Scott Sinclair is put in on goal by James Forrest but is crowded out in the Motherwell box as goalkeeper Mark Gillespie comes off his line.

  17. CLOSE!

    Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Dedryck Boyata cuts out Gboly Ariyibi's low cross just as Conor Sammon waited to pounce in the middle. It was an important intervention from the Celtic defender that took the ball just wide. Well's Jake Hastie has been booked for a foul on Jonny Hayes.

  18. GOAL Celtic 4-1 Motherwell

    Oliver Burke

    It's a fourth for Celtic and a fourth for Oliver Burke since he joined the club last month. He finishes with some style after being found by James Forrest.
