Motherwell dominated from the start on Sunday afternoon and cantered to a 5-1 victory, their sixth success in their last seven visits to the capital of the Highlands.

Michael Higdon and Jamie Murphy put the visitors in command and although Richie Foran's strike offered a flicker of hope for the home faithful, that was swiftly extinguished by further goals form Adam Cummins, Henrik Ojamaa and Omar Daley.

He said: "We never played from the first whistle to the last. We were comprehensively beaten.

"We just never got going today and that was disappointing, especially in front of a television audience.

"I didn't go mad at the players. In fact, I had a bit of a laugh and a joke with them.

"They are a great bunch of guys but today it was like a team of strangers turned up. We weren't at the races.

"I could still be in the dressing room on Tuesday going through every player's mistakes but there's no point dwelling on that.

"It's one of these games that we'll have a look at the DVD, although not a long one, then we'll throw it in the bin and move on from there.

"We are a positive club and we want to move forward together, which we'll do for the rest of the week and make sure we are ready for Celtic."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
