Celtic 10/11 to win Scottish Premiership title after Motherwell beat Rangers

Celtic have shortened to 10/11 to win the 2023/24 Scottish Premiership title after Rangers suffered a 2-1 defeat to Motherwell.

The Gers had the opportunity to open up a five point gap over their Glasgow rivals, with Brendan Rodgers' outfit not in action until Sunday.

But they were left shell-shocked as goals from Theo Bair and Dan Casey helped Motherwell to secure their first victory at Ibrox in nine years.

The result ended Rangers' 11-game winning streak, a run that began following a 2-1 defeat in the Old Firm on December 30.

Philippe Clement's side, who are also priced at 10/11, remain two points clear at the top of the table but reigning champions Celtic can regain the lead they enjoyed for much of the season when they visit Heart of Midlothian.

Bair put Motherwell ahead early in the first half before James Tavernier equalised from the penalty spot on the hour mark.

Casey then headed the Steelmen in front for the second time in the game and Stuart Kettlewell's men displayed impressive resilience to thwart a disjointed Rangers outfit.

The result boosted their own hopes of a top-six finish.

With a trip to Lisbon scheduled for Thursday to face Benfica in the Europa League, Rangers must dust themselves down and prevent a hangover from a disappointing defeat.

Clement's side are not back in league action until the 17th March where they travel to Dundee.

Celtic and Rangers meet on the 2nd April, a match that is set to have massive implications on the title race.
