Robertson in charge vs Celtic
Referee for Saturday’s Ladbrokes Premiership match against Celtic at Parkhead is Don Robertson.
It will be Don’s third ‘Well appointment of the 2016/17 season and his seventh Motherwell fixture during his six seasons as a senior official.
His first appointment this season was the Steelmen’s 3-0 victory over Stranraer in the Betfred League Cup back in July.
Goals from Chris Cadden, Scott McDonald and Marvin Johnson secured the three points in the group stage.
But the officials most recent ‘Well match was against Inverness CT back in October, when the Steelmen slumped to a 3-0 home loss.
Before this season, most of Don’s Motherwell appointments came last season – the first being a 1-1 draw with Ross County at Fir Park back in early September when a last-minute Louis Moult leveler earned the Steelmen a point.
Then, just three weeks late, he was the man in the middle for the 2-1 defeat at Dens Park when Stephen Pearson’s goal was not enough to earn his side anything during Stephen Craigan’s temporary tenure.
The most recent was the memorable 2-1 win over Aberdeen at Fir Park last March when a Scott McDonald header and an opportunistic Moult goal gave Mark McGhee’s side all three points.
The only game other came in February of the 2014/15 season when Dundee were again the opponents, and they won 0-1 in North Lanarkshire courtesy of a Paul McGinn goal after twelve minutes.
Don will be ably assisted by Alan Mulvanny and Ivan Stankovic, with Grant Irvine on fourth official duties.
