Willie Collum will referee Saturday’s match between Motherwell and Celtic at Fir Park.

The Lanarkshire based official was in charge of Celtic’s 6-0 win over St Mirren, in nine SPFL matches this season Collum, Bobby Madden and Euan Anderson will each have been given two fixtures.

In the match against St Mirren Ange Postecoglou’s side had 74% possession but committed 18 fouls compared to 10 by the visitors who had Alan Power sent off for a brutal first half attack on David Turnbull.

Saturday’s match will be Collum’s fifth SPFL fixture of the season, at the weekend he was on international duty at the Luxembourg v Serbia match.

Celtic go to Fir Park on Sunday looking to build on their away win at Aberdeen in the last match before the international break.

Postecoglou will be keeping an eye on his international players over the next couple of days while hoping that some of his injured players such as James Forrest and Josip Juranovic will be available.

David Roome and Craig Ferguson will be the assistants on Saturday with Chris Fordyce as the fourth official.
