Magnificent seven for Aberdeen

FT: Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

The night belongs to Aberdeen and Andrew Considine, the unlikely hat-trick hero.

Kenny McLean also deserves an honourable mention for a sparkling display.

"It's incredible," Considine tells BBC Radio Scotland. "The boys were fantastic from the very start.

"Even at 4-0 up at half time, we still kept going in the second half and that shows the confidence the manager has instilled in the side.

"When you have Jonny Hayes and Niall McGinn in the side, you know the deliveries will be quality and that gives guys like me and Ash (Taylor) a chance.

"It's a fantastic early birthday present. Another thing ticked off the list."

On that note, I'll call it quits since I don't think we're going to hear from Dundee manager Paul Hartley any time soon. Good night.

Chris Garvie : Great performance from Aberdeen...in fact you could argue that since new year they have been Celtic's equal. 

Jamie Bonner : 7-0? Can't believe Dundee didn't at least get a drop goal or a penalty back.

Steven Stockman : Well done Aberdeen, finishing the season strong  

Fintan Rochford : An Aberdeen/Celtic plus a few others would smash that World Cup qualifying group   

When Saturday comes

We have four more Premiership matches tomorrow, with BBC Scotland providing radio and text coverage.

All the kick-offs are at 15:00 and there are lots of intriguing sub-plots brewing.

Rangers v Motherwell

Partick Thistle v Ross County

Inverness CT v Kilmarnock

Hamilton v St Johnstone

FT: Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

So, who's up next for the rampant Dons? Inverness Caley Thistle go to Pittodrie on Tuesday and they might just be a bit nervous.

On the same night, Dundee need to pick themselves up for a visit to Ross County, who could leapfrog them with a win at Firhill tomorrow.

Gordon Christie : "Close game then was it? (Sniggers)"  

'You don't get many nights like this'

FT: Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes on BBC Sportsound:

"They played the way they normally train.

"You don't get too many nights like this and I really enjoyed watching that. To see the goals spread across the team is really pleasing.

"Andrew Considine should have had four! He missed an early header. Well done to him.

"In previous seasons we have run out steam since we've been using the same players but we're seeing the benefit of the winter break and the international breaks.

"The next game can't come quick enough."

Birthday treat for hat-trick hero

FT: Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

It's only Andrew Considine's birthday tomorrow!

The big man will be 30 at midnight. I hope he's staying up to watch the highlights on the BBC Sport website with maybe a cold beer and few salted peanuts for energy replenishment.

"I've scored twice in a couple of games, but never a hat-trick," he tells BT Sport in his impeccably polite manner.

Advantage Aberdeen in the race for second

FT: Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

"What an absolutely outstanding display from Aberdeen with Andrew Considine's hat-trick the icing on an exceedingly good cake.

"Their grip on second place looks very strong with the added goal difference another bonus.

"Dundee boss Paul Hartley will have some job lifting his side after an utterly horrible evening."

FT: Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

Aberdeen pull 11 points clear of Rangers in third place and their vastly superior goal difference has got to be worth another point.

The Dons are now on +36, while Rangers are +9.

The Ibrox side are at home to Motherwell tomorrow.

FULL-TIME Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

Wow. That was a hammering.

The biggest win of the Premiership season.

Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

Andrew Considine is one of the hardest working players I've played alongside. He works on all his weaknesses. He deserves everything he gets. He's one of those players who goes home and says 'I put a shift in'.

Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

There are a few "taps aff" and lots of broad smiles in the away end as the Aberdeen fans revel in what has been a fantastic performance from their favourites. 

GOAL Dundee 0-7 Aberdeen

Andrew Considine (hat-trick)

What a night for Andrew Considine! It's not often a left-back gets a hat-trick.

Ryan Christie whips in a great free-kick, Ash Taylor glances it on and there is the big defender lunging in at the back post to prod it home.

He really wanted that one.

Dundee 0-6 Aberdeen

Going into the game Dundee had a few points to spare over the teams below them and they had a healthy goal difference. It's almost been wiped out in this one game.

Dundee 0-6 Aberdeen

Niall McGinn, who has turned down a new contract offer, gets a warm ovation from the Aberdeen fans as he departs after scoring.

Teenager Frank Ross is on for a rare appearance.

GOAL Dundee 0-6 Aberdeen

Niall McGinn

Adam Rooney pounces on a dreadful touch from defender Kevin Holt and Ryan Christie is able to run round the corner and drill the ball in from the right for Niall McGinn to sweep home from close range.

This is a rout.

Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

Another Dons danger man is given an early rest as Jonny Hayes is withdrawn and Scott Wright gets a taste of the action.

Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

Spanish / Doric cries of ole from the visiting fans as Aberdeen indulge in some showboating. Another neat move culminates in Ryan Christie blazing an effort high and wide.

Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

Dundee forward Henrik Ojamaa cuts in from the left and takes aim for the far top corner. Unfortunately for the Estonia international, his shot flies high into the stand instead.

Magnificent McLean

Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

Martin Dowden

BBC Sport Scotland at Dens Park

"Trying to pick out a star man in this Aberdeen performance seems a touch ridiculous. However, Kenny McLean has stood out.

"His performance level over the past few months has improved significantly and is adding so much to this side.

"In truth though, the entire team look at the top of their game."

Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

And that's the last we'll see of Mr McLean. He was having great fun out there but manager Derek McInnes wants to keep him fresh and on comes Ryan Christie.

CLOSE!

Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

Right on cue, Kenny McLean picks the pocket of Paul McGowan and thunders a shot narrowly over the top.

Should this lad be in the Scotland squad?

Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

Kenny McLean; his performance has been unbelievable. I don't think he's given the ball away yet. Every time he's touched the ball it's been something positive for Aberdeen.

Gary Naysmith Former Aberdeen defender on BBC Sportsound

Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

The Aberdeen fans packed in behind Scott Bain's goal in the Bob Shankly Stand are absolutely loving this. 

Every time a player in red gets the ball he's encouraged to shoot, no matter the distance or angle. Niall McGinn duly obliges with a rising effort that whistles over the top.

Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

5-0. This is an absolute tonking.

Alex Rae Former Dundee manager on BBC Sportsound

GOAL Dundee 0-5 Aberdeen

Ryan Jack

No let up from the Dons as Jonny Hayes skips through a couple of challenges to zip into the penalty area from the left. He dinks a cross to the back post area and there is captain Ryan Jack to slam a well placed shot in off the base of the post.

More home fans leaving...

Dundee 0-4 Aberdeen

Here come Aberdeen again as Jonny Hayes tees up Graeme Shinnie for a shot but the midfielder's effort from 20 yards curls over the top, without troubling goalkeeper Scott Bain.

CLOSE!

Dundee 0-4 Aberdeen

Better from the hosts as Faissal El Bakhtaoui blasts a shot narrowly wide from 22 yards. He scored a screamer from similar range against Celtic last time out.

KICK-OFF

Dundee 0-4 Aberdeen

We're off again.

Dundee have changed things up, with Craig Wighton and Henrik Ojamaa on for Nick Ross and Tom Hateley.

HT: Dundee 0-4 Aberdeen

The teams are on their way back out.

How do Dundee approach the second half? The game is a lost cause. It's about saving face and rediscovering some semblance of organisation.

HT: Dundee 0-4 Aberdeen

Three of the goals have been from Dundee losing men at crosses and that will be frustrating for manager Paul Hartley

"It's been a disastrous evening for Dundee. It's not often you see supporters leave after 40 minutes but that's exactly what's happened with a minority of home fans.

"Paul Hartley has been hampered with injuries but he would demand more than this. Half-time team talks don't come much harder than this.

"Having said that, it's perhaps the best 45 minutes I've seen from any side this season. Aberdeen have been magnificent."

HALF-TIME Dundee 0-4 Aberdeen

Much of the pre-match talk was of a possible title party for Celtic but Aberdeen have changed the narrative completely with a hugely impressive attacking display at Dens Park.

A double for Andrew Considine and one each for Adam Rooney and Kenny McLean.

The Dons are pulling 11 points clear of Rangers in third place.
