Following Celtic away from home just seesms to be a constant clammer for tickets. Anyone who has been to Pittodrie will testify that Celtic fans are treated like cattle at a market. We are penned into a restricted view area at the corner of the stadium and some of it is not under cover so if it rains your soaked for the long drive back to Glasgow.
However the 1600 Celtic fans that crammed into the away section on Sunday were very happy going down the road after watching Mr Reliable Callum McGregor open the scoring in front of the travelling support in what would prove to be a tough assignment up North.
Kristoffer Ajer scored a brilliant goal to win the game and keep the ship steady in stormy
conditions as we sail for the 91AR. 13 points clear at full time and 10 points clear after the rangers scrapped a 1-0 home win over Livingston at a half empty Ibrox later in the day.
Aberdeen grew in confidence after Ash Taylor’s equaliser before half time and their fans finally got vocal and got behind them in what can only be described as a stadium with empty seats throughout which raises the question. Would it not make financial sense to allow Celtic fans buy the empty seats and give us a full stand? .
Greg Taylor who has recently forced his way into the starting 11 on a regular basis was taken off with a hamstring injury in the first half. Hopefully the injury is not too bad because we need everyone fit with so many important games coming up.
Top Bhoy, Odsonne Edouard’s missed a sitter; he has now gone 2 games without a goal so he might be worth a wee bet for a goal on Thursday when we visit Copenhagen.
