    Celtic 1-0 Motherwell

    Celtic 1-0 Motherwell

    Motherwell lost 1-0 at Celtic in the cinch Premiership but arguably should have left with at least a point.

    Tom Rogic’s goal late in the first half was the difference in a game where Motherwell will feel aggrieved they left empty handed after a host of chances went begging.

    Jake Carroll replaced the injured Ricki Lamie at centre back, with Barry Maguire restored to the team in place of Dean Cornelius in two changes.

    The first chance fell to Celtic and it should have seen the hosts ahead.

    Working their way through the heart with quick passes, a clip through the bodies found Forrest in behind in the box.

    He was one-on-one with Kelly six yards out with the goal gaping, but somehow conspired to put the ball past the right post.

    The winger was forced off injured soon after and a Motherwell onslaught then followed.

    Watt’s cross from the left saw Slattery head wide from 12 yards, before the midfielder had a great chance from distance.

    Working space 25 yards out, he cut onto his left and fired in a curling shot which clipped the top of Hart’s crossbar with the goalkeeper beaten.

    Goss’ shot from 15 yards then took a big deflection and then resulted in a brilliant save from the former England goalkeeper, who then spread himself to deny the goalkeeper a tap-in on the rebound.

    Kelly was then called into action to pull off an outstanding save to turn over a Turnbull shot, but the Steelmen should have been the team going in ahead at the interval.

    Instead it would be the hosts.

    A soft free-kick on the left side of the area looked like it would be whipped in by Turnbull. But instead, Rogic peeled off and a simple pass along the 18-yard line allowed him to whip the ball in to the net through the crowd of bodies.

    Rogic would come close to adding a second within 60 seconds of the restart, only for McGinley to deny him with a great lunging tackle as he went to pull the trigger.

    Both sides would have a succession of half chances as Motherwell continued to match the Glasgow side. For the visitors, Shields saw a header go wide and then was denied at the near post after a great Starfelt block stopped him turning the ball in at the near post.

    In the end, Motherwell would contain their opponents but fail to find the cutting edge to take what would have been a deserved result back home.

    Graham Alexander named manager of the month

    Graham Alexander named manager of the month

    Graham Alexander is the Glen’s Vodka Premiership Manager of the Month for November.

    The Motherwell boss picks up the award for the second time this campaign, and the third time in his 11-month tenure at Fir Park, after three wins from four.

    Victories over Aberdeen, Dundee United and Hearts, backed up by three clean sheets, added another valuable nine points to our tally and kept the team near the top end of the Premiership table.

    “I’m delighted once again to be accepting this award on behalf of everyone who has worked so hard to contribute to our results,” said the Motherwell boss.

    “It is the efforts of everyone that helped us win the three matches and win this award for the second time this season.”

    Alexander was also the recipient of the September award, having also been recognised in April.

    He now pulls level with Terry Butcher and Stuart McCall in winning the prize three times, with only Mark McGhee ahead on four.

    Tale of the tape

    Celtic were 2-0 victors in the first encounter between the two teams this season, with Jota and David Turnbull netting at Fir Park.

    Motherwell’s last win in this fixture came at Celtic Park in December 2015, with a Louis Moult double cancelling out Nir Bitton’s opener in a 2-1 away win.

    Form guide

    Motherwell’s 1-1 draw at Hibernian on Saturday followed off the back of three wins from four league matches in November.

    Celtic face a dead rubber UEFA Europa League tie at home to Real Betis on Thursday evening, having already secured third spot and a place in the knockout stage of the UEFA Europa Conference League after the new year.

    A 3-0 league win at Dundee United on Sunday made it 10 league games undefeated, with eight victories and two draws amassed in that time. Those two draws came at home to Dundee United and Livingston.
