Admission prices have been cut for what promises to be an emotional occasion when Motherwell visit Kilmarnock on Saturday.

The Rugby Park side produced a terrific performance to beat Celtic 1-0 in the League Cup final at Hampden on Sunday. But celebrations were cut short when Jack Kelly, dad of Killie player Liam, died a short time after the final whistle following a heart attack.

Mr Kelly had been in the crowd watching his son play a starring role for the Ayrshire side.His death overshadowed Kilmarnock’s achievement in winning the trophy for the first time.

Fans at Rugby Park will pay £15 (concessions £10, children £5) to watch the third league game of the season between the teams who have yet to manage a goal between them. They drew 0-0 at Rugby Park in July and at Fir Park in October.

Motherwell drew level with Rangers in second place in the table when they beat Aberdeen thanks to an excellent Steven Hammell goal while ’Gers went down 2-1 at Dundee United.
