Henri Anier says Motherwell will put the Celtic defeat behind them when Hearts come calling after the international break.

Anier is in the Estonian squad which plays Turkey on Friday and then Romania on Tuesday, after suffering no ill effects from a knee injury in his appearance at Celtic Park.

He said: “It was a great experience for me to play at Celtic Park and I enjoyed it, it was a pity we lost 2-0, but I thought we did better in the second half and we’ll just have to try harder next time we go there.

“My knee is good, I twisted it during the game with Ross County, but didn’t feel anything at Celtic and I’m ready to play for my country.”

Anier scored the winner against Hibs on the opening day of the season and is keen for an Edinburgh double on October 19.

He said: “It would be nice to do the same as I did at Hibs, but it’s not important who scores the goals.

“Once I get back I’ll be looking forward to the Hearts game as despite Saturday’s result we’re still confident of taking the three points.”
