Aberdeen fell to a 2-1 defeat in a controversial encounter with Celtic at Parkhead as they ended the game without Sam Cosgrove.

Going into this match, the Dons were looking to avenge a 4-0 defeat handed to them at Pittodrie by Celtic. An early opener from Christopher Julien didn’t set them out with a great start.

Cosgrove stepped up to the mark once again and got back Aberdeen level at half time. That wasn’t to be the biggest talking point surrounding the Englishman though.

Odsonne Edouard restored Celtic’s lead before Cosgrove was shown a controversial red card. Whilst appearing to win the ball, his challenge on Kristoffer Ajer was deemed reckless and the striker was sent down the tunnel.


The home side threw plenty at Aberdeen and on another day it could have been more than two for them. More goals weren’t had though as Aberdeen rode their luck a bit to get over the line with a respectable scoreline.

It drops them into fourth over Christmas as the race for third tightens with Motherwell, who leapfrogged them with a win over Kilmarnock.

Some Aberdeen fans have reacted to the Celtic Park defeat.
