Chris Sutton hasn’t held back on his verdict of Aberdeen’s weekend performance, slamming what he calls a ‘hopeless’ Dons side.

It was a terrible afternoon for the club on the park and Sutton is adamant it was as poor a performance as he can remember from Aberdeen.

He said on BT Sport 1 (14:18, 27/10/19): “It was the most gutless performance I’ve ever seen from an Aberdeen team.

“I did not expect this turning up today. Aberdeen rolled over. You may not be able to match an opponent in terms of skill level, but you have to work, you have to graft.

“Aberdeen simply didn’t and that will be the biggest disappointment for Derek McInnes.”

Scathing criticism handed to Aberdeen by Sutton

Sutton isn’t known to hold back on his opinion but this is a brutally honest verdict on Aberdeen’s 4-0 performance. Whilst some might not be as damning, most will definitely agree with the sentiments.

If it weren’t for Celtic taking their foot off the gas in the second half, this game could’ve ended up much worse for Aberdeen. They were extremely poor in the first half and Celtic made them pay.

McInnes must make sure this is forgotten about in a hurry. They have to continue to strive for third place after this setback and that starts away to Hamilton on Wednesday night.

A win there won’t appease some disgruntled supporters but it’ll be a good way to put the scars of this terrible result to bed.
