Celtic v Motherwell LIVE

Celtic are looking to rebound from a Champions League body blow in midweek as Motherwell come to town.

The 2-1 loss to Ferencvaros once again spelled the Hoops’ elimination from Europe’s premier competition before reaching the group stage.

New signing David Turnbull was paraded the day after that loss, however, and he could be in line to make his debut against the club he grew up at, starting on the bench.

Neil Lennon publicly criticised a number of unnamed players for wanting to leave Parkhead and it will be all eyes on the team-sheets to spot any glaring omissions from his squad today.

Stephen Robinson’s side meanwhile have had a rough start to the league and they begin today’s match bottom of the league after five games.

But a point will be enough to go ahead of Lanarkshire rivals Hamilton, who pulled off a derby win at Fir Park last time out.

Unlike Celtic, Motherwell enjoyed a resounding win in Europe as they dismantled Glentoran 5-1 on Thursday night and the Steelmen will be hoping that can kick-start their season.

Lennon has named an unchanged side from midweek, again electing to go without a recognised striker.

For the visitors, former Parkhead star Tony Watt starts against his old club.

Celtic XI: Barkas, Jullien, Taylor, Brown, Christie, Ntcham, Elyounoussi, Ajer, McGregor, Elhamed, Forrest

Motherwell XI: Carson, O’Donnell, Gallagher, Mugabi, Lamie, Grimshaw, O’Hara, Campbell, Polworth, Watt, Long
