Aberdeen 1-3 Celtic: Twelve minutes of drama seals points

Rodgers's side are just three games away from creating their own bit of history by going through the entire campaign unbeaten and while the Celtic manager has spent the last few months shielding his players about the significance of that, it is fair to say that if they come through the game in Aberdeen then the expectation is that they will do it.

Dedryck Boyata, Stuart Armstrong and Leigh Griffiths all scored within 11 minutes as Celtic raced out of the blocks to secure a 3-1 victory at Aberdeen. "I thought the better players on the park had red shirts on, but Jonny carried the fight and we all go in behind him".

The Dons have lost their last two home games.

'It was a brilliant win for us, ' the Parkhead boss added.

The Bhoys are looking to make sure they go through the domestic season unbeaten, a record Aberdeen will be keen to end tonight, while the two teams are also due to meet in the Scottish Cup final, meaning this evening can lay down a psychological marker.

"So we don't have too many options to be resting players even if we wanted to, and I think it's risky to be doing that".

The Tackle In The Old Firm Derby That Everyone Is Talking About
KENNY MILLER: The experienced captain, 37, gave Rangers fans a boost on Friday night when he signed a new one-year deal. Celtic are now five matches away from completing the domestic season unbeaten.

'I think people are waiting for the game where we go soft and lose our focus. You can see that in the way we've played this year.

"If you look at the two performances: the pitch was terrible at Parkhead and slowed our game down and we went to Hampden and were outstanding and very good a week later". We are preparing every single day for every single game, to train the best we can and win.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers: "If it is like all the other games we've had against them - we've played Aberdeen four times this season already - it will be a very tough game". Our players have shown they can cope with that.

'We had better chances, but while we were negligent the penalty-kick incident was ridiculous, ' insisted McInnes. Celtic needed to feel us and know we were there.

Aberdeen had a penalty claim early in the second half when Gordon and Shinnie collided, but it looked as though the Dons man sent the ball out of play long before the goalkeeper arrived on the scene. We've played Rangers six times this season, against different systems and structures.
