Derek McInnes has sent a warning to Celtic ahead of a huge four days for Aberdeen in Glasgow.

The Dons face Celtic in the league on Saturday, before returning to the city to play Rangers in a Scottish Cup replay on Sunday.

McInnes, whose side have won their last seven away games on the spin, has warned the Scottish champions that they are travelling to Glasgow with intentions of victory.

“We’ve had two tight games against Celtic this season, our away form has been good, and we want to continue that” he told Football Scotland.

The next two games are the kind you want to be involved in but, first things first, we’re concentrating on the Celtic game.

“The evidence is there that we’re a strong team on the road, and we want to continue that.”

The Dons have run Celtic close this season, losing 1-0 at Celtic Park and 4-3 at Pittodrie. The Betfred Cup Final between the sides was also a tight game, with Celtic narrowly prevailing 1-0.

He is more than capable of adding to his 18 goals this season against Celtic. Indeed, he scored in the game between the sides at Pittodrie this season.

Aberdeen’s away form recently has been so good – a win at Celtic Park would set a new club record of eight away wins in a row – that McInnes is right to be confident of a win against Celtic.

That would give his side plenty of confidence heading into the cup tie at Ibrox.
