Aberdeen legend Joe Harper is confident his old team can set a record at Celtic Park on Saturday. A Dons victory would set a new club record of eight successive away wins.
Harper, who played for the last Aberdeen side to win seven away games in a row, believes that Derek McInnes’ side are more than capable of pulling off the win at the home of the Scottish Premiership champions.
“I’d be absolutely delighted if Aberdeen can break this record” Harper told the Evening Express.
“We don’t want to put pressure on them, but they are capable of beating Celtic and getting the record.
“And there’s no better place to do it than at Parkhead.”
How Aberdeen approach the game could determine the result at Celtic Park.
The Dons face a huge match only three days after the visit to Celtic Park, as they take on Rangers at Ibrox in a Scottish Cup replay.
It will be interesting to see if McInnes picks the strongest available team, or makes changes with the cup tie in mind.
Arguably the cup tie is the bigger of the two games. But the Dons will not want to pass up on the chance of making history.
One way or another, the next two games look set to define Aberdeen’s season. Two victories would make it a season to remember, whilst two losses would all but end the Dons’ season.
