Trophy time for Celtic
There was a familiar party feel in the Glasgow sunshine before the game. Celtic, having won seven successive league titles, have become used to celebrating at this time of year but Aberdeen were desperate for a final-day flourish that could see them claim the best of the rest spot.As expected it was the home side who dominated early proceedings, but the first real effort fell to the men in red. Gary Mackay-Steven was brought down on the edge of the box and Stewart smashed the resulting free-kick off Scott Bain's crossbar.It gave the visitors a confidence boost and after Lewis blocked a Moussa Dembele shot from close range, they poured forward and Kristoffer Ajer cleared a cross that almost crept past Bain into the Celtic goal.Both sets of fans were clearly well aware of the rollercoaster match between Hibs and Rangers in the capital, with each goal for the home side being met with cheers from those in red and green in equal measure.

Griffiths was unsuccessful with three second-half efforts for CelticBut goals were what was lacking at Celtic Park and what started off as an interesting tussle turned fairly scrappy with neither side looking particularly threatening in the final third of the pitch.Sensing how the tide was turning at Easter Road, Aberdeen came out after the interval with real intent. Stewart curled a shot just over but less than a minute later they were ahead.The Celtic defence failed to clear on the left-hand side and, with some help from Kenny McLean, the ball fell to Considine, who powered through on goal and blasted low past Bain at his near post. It was a fine finish and it felt very much like a crucial finish.Rodgers made a couple of changes, perhaps with the Scottish Cup final in mind, and one of those changes, Griffiths, should have done better 10 minutes after the goal. Ajer slid the ball through at the edge of the box but the striker could only toe poke a weak effort into the thankful hands of Lewis.Celtic were starting to turn the screw, though, and Olivier Ntcham watched Lewis desperately scramble across his goal to block his long-range effort, Anthony O'Connor superbly blocking Callum McGregor's rebound attempt. It was all beginning to look a little ominous for the visitors.It was Lewis who continued to come to Aberdeen's rescue as his goal was peppered with Celtic shots time and time again - Griffiths and Armstrong both on target but denied by the Englishman. McInnes could hardly watch as he prowled the Aberdeen technical area desperate for the clock to read 90.But when the whistle was blown he jumped in then air as did the small band of Aberdeen fans who had travelled to Glasgow hoping this could be their day.It all got a little too much for Logan, who was sent off after the final whistle for over-celebrating in front of the Celtic fans.
