It’s Ronny Deila’s last game as Celtic manager and there’s no doubting some fans are glad to see the back of him.
He is probably looking forward to leaving Scotland too after a stressful few seasons didn’t quite go to plan. Failure in Europe will be seen by many as his defining moment but he can lay claim to having won three trophies in two seasons and that will be his legacy.
But Motherwell won’t necessarily be here to take part in the niceties upon Ronny’s long goodbye. They have the chance to win at Celtic Park for the second time in a row and they should be sniffing around the possibilities of that actually happening.
Celtic’s performance against St Johnstone in a 2-1 defeat had all the hallmarks of this season’s defensive ineptitude. Another two calamitous goals were conceded and so long as that is happening it is hard to see a new manager doing much better.
The Steelmen have attacking talent in good form who can definitely trouble Celtic. Louis Moult scored twice here in the December win on his way to fifteen league goals for the season. Scott McDonald, himself on ten goals, would surely love to grab one at Celtic Park too for old time’s sake.
But in reality it’s still a tough ask to go to Celtic Park and win and there really is nothing much to play for. Even the most optimistic of Motherwell fans can’t expect lightning to strike twice in one season, can they?
Celtic v Motherwell Betting Preview Best Betting Odds
Celtic are 1.25 (1/4) favourites with William Hill to win their last game of the season. Motherwell can be backed at a high price of 13.5 (25/2) with Marathon Bet who are also best price for the draw at 6/1.
There may be some potential in backing Motherwell +2 Asian Handicap at 1.86 (6/7) with McBookie. That gives stake bake insurance should they lose by exactly two goals.
Both teams to score certainly has a chance at 1.9 (9/10) with McBookie while +2.5 goals has less appeal at a ridiculously short 1.4 (2/5) with bet365 and Ladbrokes amongst others. The 3.06 (33/16) price from Marathon Bet for under 2.5 goals may be worth looking at instead.
