Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata is aware that Motherwell will be out for revenge against Celtic tomorrow night.
The Hoops take on their Betfred Cup Final opponents at Fir Park, following Celtic’s controversial 2-0 victory at Hampden Park on Sunday.
Motherwell players and staff were furious after referee Craig Thomson sent off Cedric Kipre after a foul in the penalty box on Scott Sinclair, who was accused of diving.
Dembele scored the penalty which ended the game as a meaningful contest.
As reported by Superscoreboard’s official Twitter account, Boyata knows that Stephen Robinson’s side will be ‘fired up’ and will want to ‘get back’ at Celtic.

The Hoops face Motherwell tomorrow night and again at Celtic Park on Saturday, as their trilogy comes to an end.
Boyata has become a mainstay in the Celtic side over the last year.
After his Celtic career looked to be over after a poor performance against Rangers in the 2016 Scottish Cup semi-final, he has become a player reborn under Brendan Rodgers.
He is now a key man in Celtic’s central defence, alongside Jozo Simunovic.
Celtic go into tomorrow night’s game on a 65 game British record unbeaten domestic run.
The Hoops are currently three points ahead of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, with a game in hand.
