Why Celtic Fans Are Furious With Motherwell This Afternoon

Celtic fans are absolutely furious with Motherwell this afternoon – and here’s why.

Brendan Rodgers’ men welcomed The Steelmen to Celtic Park earlier for the final game of the Scottish Premiership weekend.

And they managed to emerge 4-1 victors, thanks to some clinical finishing from their front men.

So there’s nothing to be angry about when it comes to the result.

It’s the way they conceded a goal that has led to fury among the fans.

Thinking Motherwell were going to return the ball to them after it was kicked out to allow a player treatment on the pitch, Stephen Robinson’s men actually raced up the park to score – capitalising on Celtic not expecting them to.

It was James Scott who ran on to a throw-in before his shot was parried into the path of Gboly Ariyibi and he fired home.

This is just some of the reaction:

And so on.

Celtic were leading 2-0 at the time thanks to goals from Scott Sinclair and Odsonne Edouard and went on to make the three points certain with a stunning Edouard free-kick and a strike from Oli Burke.
