This, finally, was the day that Celtic won away, and it didn’t come easily.
The Hoops started the match on the front foot and deservedly took the lead through Kyogo in the first half. Jota was unlucky not to double Celtic’s advantage, when his powerful long range drive struck the crossbar, as Postecoglou’s men turned on the style.
The second 45 took a different trajectory. Aberdeen came into the game and drew level through Lewis Ferguson’s header, which the combined hesitance of Joe Hart and Adam Montgomery allowed to slip into the net.
Proceedings became fraught thereafter, Celtic desperate to take maximum points and close the gap to five points at the top. Just when it appeared that the Bhoys would have to settle for a point, Jota latched on to Mongtomery’s square ball and tapped home.
The goal sent the away section delirious, with the celebrations continuing after full time.
