Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has maintained that Celtic’s honesty is not in question after the accusations of diving that were levelled at them by Motherwell.

Scott Sinclair was in the eye of a storm this week after he was accused of going down too easily by the Fir Park side at Hampden, criticism that intensified on Wednesday night when Motherwell then accused Callum McGregor of doing the same.

The penalty at Fir Park was Celtic's first in the league this season and Rodgers has insisted that the honesty of his players is not up for debate.

"I think we won the Fair Play award last year," said Rodgers.

"We have values here as a club as well as a team and that is something that we always go by.

"We have had two penalty decisions that have been the first two penalties of this season, of course, against the same opponent.

"You will always look at it from your perspective and I thought they were penalties.

"But this is a group of players who are super-honest and the referees have both been in good positions and gave both.

"We don't need validation from anyone. We like to win on the scoreboard abut we also like to do it by being the most sporting team and I think we showed that last year and also up until now."
