Motherwell manager Stuart McCall has admitted that he will be supporting Celtic when they take on Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final later this month.
McCall, who used to play for Rangers, has guided his side to second place in the SPL this season, bringing with it a Europa League place. However, the stage at which they will enter next season's competition depends on the result in the final.
Should Hibs win, Motherwell will begin their season as early as July 18, while a Celtic win would ensure that they would not be in action until August.
"We have a rough idea when we will go back," said McCall. "Obviously when we go into Europe depends on the cup final result.
"If Celtic manage to beat Hibs, we will go in a bit later. So it's possibly the first time I have ever been cheering Celtic on at a cup final. But we are all looking forward to Europe."
McCall was named as the SPL Manager of the Year this evening following his side's second place finish.
