new date for motherwell /celtic clash
Motherwell's twice-postponed match against Celtic in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League has been rescheduled for March 15.

Motherwell and Celtic had league fixtures against Rangers and Dundee United scheduled for that Saturday.

However, those games were postponed after Rangers and United reached the CIS Insurance Cup final, which takes place the following day.

The death of Phil O'Donnell in December prompted the first postponement of Motherwell's Fir Park clash with Celtic, which was set for January 2, while a waterlogged pitch caused the rearranged game on January 30 to be called off at late notice.

Instead of both clubs having a free weekend in the middle of March, they have taken the opportunity to play each other.

The SPL have also revealed new dates for two further rescheduled games involving Motherwell, with the home game against Inverness now set for February 20.

The match had been set for January 26 but the Fir Park pitch was unplayable due to heavy rain.

Motherwell's match away to Hibernian, which was postponed from its original January 2 date following former captain O'Donnell's death, is now due to take place on March 12.

It had initially been rescheduled for March 5, but Hibernian could face a Scottish Cup fifth-round replay against Rangers on the previous evening.
