Aberdeen 0-1 Celtic - Championship

0 - 1





Aberdeen knew that the title chase was over long before Celtic came to Pittodrie but we would have been keen to end the battles with them having at least taken something from the Champions.... Although it wasn't to be!

Celtic, for a fourth time from four meetings in the Premiership this season, beat us one-nil on Sunday, increasing the gap to 14-points.

Quite rightly we welcomed Celtic onto the pitch by giving them a guard of honour but that's as far as the respect went with us having several chances to have gone into the half time break at least one-up.

An early chance when Jack tried to pull the ball back to the waiting Rooney, who you feel would have put us ahead, was cut out by Johansen with Robson then going close with an effort from range.

Reynolds and Robson again, with his freekick saved by Gordon, had chances as we continued to threaten with Johansen having the first chance for Celtic when he curled one effort wide before having another chance.

Early in the second half Brown (49), who started the move by winning the ball off Robson to get a counter attack going, got onto the end of Armstrong's cutback to break the deadlock with a captains goal.

Celtic started to take control and had chances with our 'keeper Brown saving well to keep out Griffiths and Commons with Hayes going down under a challenge from Denayer but no penalty was given.

Shankland had a great chance with minutes remaining but his diving header from a Hayes cross went wide with Celtic failing, with them often looking to catch us on the break, to add further goals even later with Brown keeping out Johansen and Forrest with the one goal enough.

Star Player

It's disappointing that we ended the season with a fourth defeat against Celtic from four-matches but who, for you, was the Aberdeen MotM from the defeat on Sunday?
