Motherwell manager Stuart McCall praises his players following their surprise 2-1 victory over Celtic.

Motherwell manager Stuart McCall has hailed his side's attacking prowess following their 2-1 victory over Celtic.

The former Rangers player said that his team produced "magic" in the final third and singled out striker James McFadden for praise.

"We wanted a bit of magic in the final third and we got that. We'd have taken a point tonight but to get all three is fantastic. It's a great night," BBC Sport quotes him as saying.

"It's all about points at this stage of the season. James McFadden needs time on the park and needs to be playing football. With performances like that he'll get that here."

Chris Humphrey and Michael Higdon were on target for Motherwell, with Celtic's reply coming from Georgios Samaras.
