It's fair to say the winter break came at just the right time for Celtic.

After licking their Old Firm wounds for three weeks Neil Lennon's side have stormed back to the top of the table and opened up a seven point advantage - albeit Rangers still have a game in hand.

They won't want to hand an iota of encouragement to Steven Gerrard's men, so Motherwell could be in for a long night at Fir Park.

Thepools.com make the visitors 4/11 for their sixth successive win since the restart, and we wouldn't put anybody off that.

'Well may be third in the table, but they're a long way adrift of the top two - and have managed just two Premiership goals so far this year.

Celtic have scored at least three goals in each of their last four games so Over 2.5 goals at 4/5 looks a gimme while Over 3.5 at 15/8 is a fair price for a likely goalfest.

Celtic to win and Both Teams To Score - ie. Motherwell to grab a consolation - is a huge 23/10   but after firing blanks in their last two outings I'm not convinced by that outcome.

Odsonne Edouard, five goals in his last four appearances, is the obvious first scorer pick and that has been boosted from 3/1 to 15/4 with thepools.com but penalty taker Callum McGregor is worth considering at another boosted anytime scorer price, from 5/1 to 11/2 .
