Celtic’s form this season has impressed both pundits and supporters alike.

With Ange Postecoglou’s side on course to beat the club records for goals scored and points earned in a season, the attacking style of the team has blown our opponents away.

Motherwell goalkeeper Liam Kelly was asked about the upcoming trip to Celtic Park and he paid tribute to Ange Postecoglou’s team.

Kelly said [Daily Record], “Celtic are a brilliant team and they’ll be keen to get maximum points before they break off for the semi-final game with Rangers, so we know how difficult it will be.

“We just need to be as best prepared as we can and try to look for a positive result from the game.

“We need to take that mindset of being desperate for points going into the last six games.

“We will go to Parkhead and look forward to what will be a great game to be involved in.

“We’ve been defending really well and when you go there it’s always going to be a really difficult game, so we will need to defend well to give ourselves a chance.”

Motherwell come to Celtic Park hoping to take something back to Lanarkshire to help stave off the threat of relegation.

After wins against Hibs and Livingston earlier this month, a defeat to Dundee United last week meant that Stuart Kettlewell’s men are still in danger of the dreaded drop.

Celtic, on the other hand have a 100% win record at Celtic Park and have scored 50 league goals at home, conceding just eleven.

Motherwell has the joint third-best defence in the league away from home alongside Rangers.

They have conceded just 21 goals away from home this season and that will pose a challenge to Ange Postecoglou’s side. [SPFL]
