Time for me to go. Good night.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

"Got to be delighted with that. To have so many clean sheets certainly brings confidence. Adam Rooney's first goal is a brilliant run and a great pick out from David Goodwillie. His second goal comes from a penalty kick and he's very dependable there."
