CALLUM McGREGOR believes Celtic’s 4-3 win over Motherwell at Fir Park in December has been the club’s most exciting game of the campaign.
Mark McGhee’s side were two goals ahead at the interval after strikes from Louis Moult before the Hoops battled back to clinch the points with a last-minute effort from Tom Rogic.
Midfielder McGregor, who came on as a first-half substitute and scored a crucial goal, is hoping the champions don’t make it so hard for themselves when the Fir Parkers visit Parkhead on league business on Saturday.
He said: “It was probably one of the only games this season when we didn’t start as we know we can.
“We found ourselves two goals down pretty early on, but we changed the system at half-time and got back into the game. Naturally, scoring that first goal was vital.
“Of course, we went on to win and it’s probably the most exciting match we’ve had this season so it was good to be a part of that.

“It was a really good turning point for the team as we hadn’t been tested too much before that in terms of going behind in the league.
“Even though we lost those two goals, we still felt that we had the team spirit and quality that, if we stayed calm, we could get back into the game.

“Motherwell always work hard and make it difficult for us.

“But it is important for us to go in with the winning mindset and try to play the right way and get the right result.
