Three Years Ago Today: Celtic Destroy Aberdeen At Pittodrie

On this day, three years ago, Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic side went to Pittodrie and put on a show. This was probably the last of the dynamic, full throttle attacking displays that we saw under Brendan’s managership, as we soon reverted to a slow possession based game. However, the football that night at Aberdeen was absolutely incredible to watch, as was the whole first 18 months of Rodgers’ reign.

Kieran Tierney was in the form of his life, scoring a beauty and showing great skill before setting up Moussa Dembele. The Frenchman was in inspired form himself as he bagged a brace.

Anything similar today would be lovely, though the result is all that really matters just now.

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic as a young child during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. At the age of 19, I published my first Celtic book (Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support). Then, last year, I published my second book (Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events), which is sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores.
