| Celtic cannot afford to get caught up in emotion of Scottish Cup final, says Charlie Nicholas
| thai sbo Charlie Nicholas has warned Celtic not to get caught up in the emotion of the Scottish Cup final as they bid to complete a domestic treble for the second year running. Brendan Rodgers' side take on Motherwell at Hampden Park on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Football, and while Nicholas expects his former side to come out on top, he says they must be wary of Steve Robinson's "awkward" side.
The Steelmen will also be out for revenge after their 2-0 loss to Celtic in November's Scottish League Cup final and draws in the two league meetings since have shown they can compete with Saturday's opponents. "Motherwell are looking to create new heroes within their football club, I think they finished seventh in the league so they are an inconsistent bunch," Nicholas told Sky Sports News. "But the style of play they have is not to be ignored, it doesn't catch my eye but it is a style that suits the personnel that they have. thai sbo
"Kilmarnock and Motherwell have been the two most awkward teams for Celtic this season and the longer the game goes on, I know Celtic have got a much stronger bench but the fans will demand that they attack, attack, attack and there are mistakes at the back for Celtic. "You can get caught up in this little trap of the emotions and the history that is in front of this Celtic side. It is going to be awkward but you just have to look at the potential creative players that they have, the match-winners they have and that is why Celtic, in my opinion, will win the cup." thai sbo
