Manager: We won’t change our style

Friday, November 24, 2017

Motherwell have had success this season sticking to their own style of play, and manager Stephen Robinson says they won’t change it as the team bid to end their 26-year trophy wait against Celtic.

The Steelmen have won 14 of their 20 competitive matches this season, topping Aberdeen and Rangers on the way to Sunday’s Betfred Cup final.

Opponents Celtic are on a 64-game unbeaten run in domestic fixtures but the Fir Park boss says there’s no point trying to change the team’s philosophy to match their opponents.

“If we try to play Celtic at their own game and try to outpass them and outplay them then we’ll get beaten,” he said. “Simple as that.

We have to find a way that suits our personnel and our players and our budget. That’s what we’ve done and we’ve been pretty successful so far at it.

“We’re not going to change that on Sunday. We believe every team have weaknesses so how we play, our strengths and how we set up can cause them problems.

“We’ve been relatively successful with what we’ve done. We’ve tinkered and twigged at systems and shapes, and different personnel.

“We’re going to play our way and try to impose our way of playing on them.

“Celtic have proved over numerous games now that when they impose their game they win football matches so we have try to disrupt that and interrupt their pattern of play.”
