Aberdeen legend Willie Miller sounds confident that the Dons can earn a rare victory in Glasgow when they take on Celtic on Saturday.

The Dons head into the game on the back of a 1-0 win over Kilmarnock which ended their six game goal drought. Celtic meanwhile lost to Ross County, a result which saw under pressure manager Neil Lennon resign.

Miller has outlined how the Dons can earn their first win at Celtic Park since May 2018. He feels that they will need to improve on the recent performance they put in during the 1-0 defeat at the same venue earlier this month.

“90-minute performance”

“They need to produce a 90-minute performance, unlike last week’s 1-0 defeat which was only really a 60-minute display after being penned in for the first half hour” he said (Evening Express).

Miller wants Aberdeen to take advantage of what looks to be a Celtic weakness at set pieces.

“Celtic’s performances lead you to that conclusion when you see some of the goals they’ve given away and their lack of concentration defensively.

“They look nervous”

“This isn’t the invincible Celtic team we’ve seen previously – they look nervous and uncertain and have been leaking goals – particularly at set pieces.”

The Dons legend also feels that his old side can take heart from the 3-3 draw with Celtic earlier this season.

“Aberdeen showed last week and in the 3-3 draw at Pittodrie in October they can cause problems. It’s an opportunity to start the turnaround in form, the Dons are still in the mix for a third-placed finish in the league” Miller concluded.
