CELTIC have gone FIFTY-FOUR games since they lost a domestic match game at Parkhead.
The last time they were beaten at home was on December 19 2015 when Motherwell won 2-1.
Mark McGhee’s Fir Park outfit came back from Nir Bitton’s opener to score twice through Louis Moult – the deciding goal coming from the penalty spot – for their first victory in the east end of Glasgow for nearly eight years.
The reverse meant Ronny Deila’s team had gone four games without a win on home turf – the worst run since Tony Mowbray was the manager.
Ajax (2-1) and Molde (2-1) both won their Europa League ties and Kilmarnock forced a goalless draw in the league.
Despite the loss, the Hoops remained top of the Premership by a point from Aberdeen.
CELTIC: Gordon; Lustig, Boyata, Simunovic, Tierney; Bitton, Rogic (sub: Cole), Commons, McGregor; Forrest (sub: Allan), Ciftci.
MOTHERWELL: Ripley; Law, Hall, McManus (sub: Laing), Hammell; Grimshaw (sub: Ainsworth), Lasley, Pearson: Johnson, McDonald, Moult.
FOOTNOTE: Celtic unfurled their fifth successive Premiership flag at the end of the season as they exacted revenge on Well with a 7-0 trouncing in Deila’s last game on May 15 2016.
