Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou has set his sights on navigating a potentially tough league game at Motherwell to pick up the three points at stake. Postecoglou warned his players to expect a difficult game against hosts Motherwell on Sunday in the quest to build on the impressive Old Firm Derby win over Rangers earlier this week. The Celtic boss talked about how difficult the Motherwell game could be in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Scottish Premiership clash.


Looking ahead of the game, Postecoglou said they have had to get to their current position by battling their way through and the former Australian national team manager doesn’t expect less when he takes his Celtic players to face Motherwell. According to him, they have not gotten to the top of the Scottish Premiership table due to one set of conditions or performance. He further said that Motherwell are a good side with ambitions of staying in the top half of the table as far as the Scottish Premiership log is concerned.

The Celtic boss is expecting a difficult test for him and his boys on the back of their 3-0 thumping of Rangers at home in the league on Wednesday night. With the convincing win, Celtic were able to move one point ahead of their rivals in the race for the league title.

Celtic were dominant in the Scottish Premiership as they won the league title for nine seasons in a row while Rangers work their way back to the top of Scottish football after some problems off the pitch. Celtic wanted to win an unprecedented tenth straight title last season but they were unable to achieve it thanks to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard who led Rangers to the league title with an unbeaten record. He left the club in November to take the Aston Villa job and Dutchman Giovanni Van Bronckhorst was appointed as the new manager in his place.
