Psychologically a win at Aberdeen could prove crucial in title race for Celtic

9 February 2022

The big games keep coming for Celtic with a trip to Pittodrie to face Aberdeen tonight.

Celtic go into the game in good form after comfortable wins over Rangers and Motherwell, 7 goals scored and 0 conceded over the two games.


Aberdeen have had a stop start season and are fighting to make the top six, they currently sit 7th on 29 points, a point behind Dundee United in 6th. They have won 8, drawn 5 and lost 11. Since the winter break the Dons have won 1 match, a cup game against Edinburgh City and had 2 draws and 2 defeats.

Our last match at Pittodrie was probably a turning point in our fortunes as we had went three away games without a win until that 2-1 win. Indeed Celtic have a good record in Aberdeen, with 9 wins and 2 draws, the last time Aberdeen won at home against the hoops was in February 2016. Lewis FergusonĀ seems to like to score against Celtic with 6 league goals since his debut in 2018.

Its a rare occasion with both Glasgow clubs in action at the same time. Psychologically a win at Aberdeen could prove crucial in the run in as Rangers went there recently and had to settle for a draw.

Mick Kane hails from Glasgow. He has been hooked on Celtic since he went to his first game when he was 7. Celtic beat Hamilton 8-3 at Celtic Park on the 3rd of January 1987. His favourite player at the time, Brian McClair scored four goals.

He started going regular as a 16 year old when Celtic played at Hampden for the season, being a Southsider it meant a short train journey to get to Hampden. From then he has had a season ticket travelled around Europe for games as Celtic became the dominant force in Scottish football again. A nice change from growing up during Rangers run to 9 in a row.
