Ross McCrorie is hoping Aberdeen can follow the example of Celtic and play their way out of a slump.

The Dons have not scored in six games, their latest defeat a 1-0 loss to Celtic. It’s the longest run of matches without a goal in Aberdeen’s history as the Pittodrie club lose ground on third place Hibs.

But having witnessed Celtic turn their form around to win five on the bounce, McCrorie is hoping for similar at Pittodrie: “I would take any win to be fair. It is the same for any player, you just want to win even if it isn’t pretty.

“I just want the three points, even if I have a stinker of a game and we win I’d be happy. I don’t think there is any getting away from the situation we are in.  It is a sticky patch but I think most teams have gone through it, Celtic have been through it recently.

“We will keep working away and ploughing away and the success will come – I don’t think our performances have been extremely bad, it is just small details we need to tidy up on. There is no getting away from the fact we have had a poor run. We have produced some poor form, certainly results wise anyway.

“I thought we put in a very good second half performance against Celtic. I thought we took the game to them and I felt we deserved something from it. It was difficult to take at the end, very disappointing not to take anything from the game.

“Our attacking play was a lot more free flowing. We were disappointed with the goal we conceded, even though it was a very good strike, but overall, defensively I felt we were compact.”
