Aberdeen’s last-minute Scottish Premiership winner away to Livingston sparked a pitch invasion – and manager Stephen Glass says he can ‘understand what happened.’

Jack Mackenzie’s 94th minute shot was not dealt with by Livingston goalkeeper Max Stryjek as Aberdeen completed a comeback 2-1 win. Aberdeen have two wins from two league games this month and head into the return leg of their Europa Conference League third round game versus Icelandic side Breidablik on Thursday with momentum.

Glass said: “Last minute winners are always special but for the fans, they’ve had a lot of emotion pent up for the last 18 months and I think any team’s fans would have reacted the same way in those circumstances. You don’t want supporters coming onto the pitch.

“But I think in these exceptional circumstances we’ve been living through, you can understand what happened. We were absolutely delighted to give that goal and that moment to the fans. The backing they gave us, in the second half especially when we were shooting into that end, it drove the team on.

“I think the fans could see that there was something coming as well and it goes hand in hand. Supporters drive players on and players get the fans going in turn and we’ve all lived without that for a long time. I think across the game, we’ll see a bigger percentage of exciting games this season now fans are back.”
