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

The Lanarkshire based education officer has yet to referee a Celtic match this season but was in charge of Motherwell’s League Cup defeat away to St Mirren last month.

Collum is the most experienced referee on the SFA rota but does seem to be slipping from favour, missing out on a Glasgow Derby last season although a late injury forced him to step down from the Scottish Cup semi-final in April. There has been two Derby matches since then that he has missed out on.

Grant Irvine, who refereed Celtic’s recent 3-0 win over Dundee will be on VAR duty assisted by David Roome.

Celtic go into the match in top place in the SPFL Premiership and facing their fourth away match of the season.

After winning on the plastic of Livingston they will be looking forward to playing on one of the best surfaces in the league, Brendan Rodgers will be forced into one change with Joe Hart suspended.
