Aberdeen secure second with Celtic win as Shay Logan sees red

Aberdeen secured second place in the Scottish Premiership after a 1-0 win over champions Celtic on the final day of the season.

With Celtic fans counting down until the game ended to celebrate winning their seventh title in a row, Andrew Considine scored for the Dons two minutes into the second half. Despite a barrage of Celtic attacks thereafter, they could not pull a goal back and the Dons sealed the win.

It was Aberdeen's first win at Celtic Park in 26 games and manager Derek McInnes' first win over Brendan Rodgers in 10 games - and was Brendan Rodgers' first home domestic defeat since becoming Celtic manager.

Celtic travel to Hampden next weekend to face Motherwell in the Scottish Cup Final as they look to secure a historic double treble.

 

Following the full time whistle, Dons defender Shay Logan was shown a red card by referee Craig Thomson for throwing a punch at Celtic's Mikael Lustig, as well as clashing with Dedryck Boyata as he was hauled off the pitch by the club's backroom staff - while the rest of the team had been celebrating in front of the away fans.

A lengthy ban for the thuggish full back is expected which will see him miss the start of the new season.

Despite the defeat, it didn't dampen the celebrations from the Celtic players and fans as they are now three titles away from a historic ten titles in a row.
