    What the managers said

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson on Aarons: "I think he can bring another bit of excitement, one against one he is very good.

    "He is a boy whose career has stood still a little bit. He burst on to the scene very young, got a lot of plaudits, but he is now trying to take his career on an upward curve again and we are hoping we can do that for him because on first viewings of him close up, he has a lot of talent."

    Celtic manager Neil Lennon said: "All teams are hungry and it's all relative. Our motivation is to defend everything as vigorously as possible. People think it's easy - it's not. Teams are out to beat you every single week.

    "People set up to be difficult to break down but we've found a way. The quality of the football has been superb at times and we're in a good place at the minute."
