  2. Celtic back on track with eventful win

    FT: Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    It might not have been a classic; the Pittodrie pitch is certainly not conducive to free-flowing, passing football, but there was plenty to keep us entertained as Celtic returned to winning ways in the Premiership.

    The champions, who had dropped points against Kilmarnock and St Johnstone in their previous league outings, are now nine points clear at the top and 12 ahead of third-placed Aberdeen.

    The Dons are yet to take a point in six games against the Old Firm this season - the only other side with nothing to show for their collective matches against Glasgow's big two is bottom side Ross County.

    FT: Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    More from Brendan Rodgers...

    "Moussa (Dembele) is a big game player and we are at the stage of the season where he comes alive in terms of what the team needs from him.

    "His pass on the breakway was outstanding - a lovely weight - Kieran (Tierney) finishes really well.

    "For his goal, it's well worked and a brilliant cross from James (Forrest).

    Rodgers add that Mikael Lustig was "unlucky" to receive two yellow cards and is less than impressed by Aberdeen duo Sam Cosgrove and Shay Logan.

    "It's not a great challenge from the boy (Cosgrove) and Logan is not the best example for young players when he twice tried to smash the ball at the player on the floor. Fortunately for Scott (Brown), he didn't hurt him."

  4. Rodgers hails 'brilliant win'

    FT: Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers talking to BBC Sportsound:

    "It was a brilliant win for us 72 hours after the game in Russia at, arguably, one the most difficult places to come.

    "I thought we had good control in first half, passed the ball well on a difficult surface. We scored an excellent goal and had one or two other chances. Their goalie made a couple of good saves.

    "Second half, we managed the game well, especially when we went down to 10.

    "We showed great speed and quality on the counter-attack for the second then saw the game out with a clean sheet."

    More from Derek McInnes...

    "I thought we showed we are a proper team today. Too often, I feel, in the bigger games, we have been too dependent on individuals. We worked hard for each other. We were guilty of some mistakes and guilty of not bringing that quality in the final third but, other than that, we were pretty spot on."

  6. 'Moments of madness' cost Aberdeen - McInnes

    FT: Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes talking to BBC Sportsound:

    "I thought the result was harsh on us. Celtic were obviously clinical. I can't remember them having too many opportunities.

    "I thought we did a lot right in terms of what I was looking for. We allowed Celtic possession in certain areas. I thought we offered a counter-attacking threat. I thought we had enough moments, even in the first half, to give us encouragement.

    "Disappointment to lose the goal but Celtic have got that quality if you give them space.

    "We had them where we wanted them in the second half. There was a lot of goalmouth action and it felt like there was something there for us.

    "Two moments of madness have maybe cost us the game.

    "From our set-play we get done on a counter and then Sam gets himself sent off."

    Willie Miller

    Former Aberdeen defender on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: Celtic are out of Europe, so no distractions there, and they are getting players back from injury. I can only see them getting stronger from here. This was Aberdeen's chance to lay down a marker
  8. Celtic in a 'very strong position'

    FT: Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: It was a scrappy second half but Celtic got the second goal and they probably deserved it for their first-half display. It leaves them in a very strong position to clinch another title

  10. 'Dons didn't do enough'

    FT: Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    Michael Stewart

    Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: I can't understand why, at home, Aberdeen gift the initiative to Celtic and play a containment style of football, particularly in the first half. Celtic's back three were there to be got at and Aberdeen didn't do enough
  11. What next?

    Both these sides are in action again on Wednesday, with Celtic at home to Dundee and Aberdeen travelling to Motherwell.

  12. FULL-TIME Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    That's 10-in-a-row for Celtic in this fixture as Brendan Rodgers' men move nine points clear of Rangers at the top of the Premiership.

  13. GREAT SAVE!

    Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    Kenny McLean has been the stand-out player for Aberdeen but he's not going to be rewarded with a goal as Dorus de Vries pushes away a fierce, angled shot from the midfielder.

  14. Post update

    Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    One last throw of the dice for the Dons as Nicky Maynard takes over from Kari Anderson. The striker will get six minutes of stoppage time to make his mark.

  15. Post update

    Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    Well, well... Aberdeen's slim chances of pressing for top spot appear to have gone up in smoke in a matter of minutes.

    Caught with a sucker punch on the break and then surrendering their advantage in personnel.

    Seats are beginning to empty in the home stands.

  16. RED CARD - Sam Cogrove

    Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    Well, that was a short debut.

    Celtic skipper Scott Brown untangles himself from an awkward challenge from Anthony O'Connor only to be scythed down by the lunging Sam Cosgrove. Shay Logan then hammers the loose ball against Brown, just for good measure.

    It's a crazy challenge from the Dons substitute and he's off, just after coming on!

  17. GOAL Aberdeen 0-2 Celtic

    Kieran Tierney

    Just as Aberdeen chuck on a second striker in the shape of Adam Rooney, the visitors double their lead.

    Moussa Dembele races through the middle and threads a pass through to Kieran Tierney, who takes a touch then thunders a shot past Freddie Woodman. Clinical.

    Aberdeen 0-1 Celtic

    Ten-man Celtic make their final change and it's a bold one; taking off winger Scott Sinclair and introducing striker Edouard Odsonne.

  19. Post update

    Aberdeen 0-1 Celtic

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers sacrifices James Forrest to shore up his depleted defence, after Mikael Lustig's red card. Jack Hendry is on.

  20. Post update

    Aberdeen 0-1 Celtic

    The home crowd are making themselves heard now as Aberdeen pitch on 21-year-old striker Sam Cosgrove for his debut. Stevie May makes way, so it's a direct replacement.
