Mac in a happy place

ABERDEEN’S improvement has heartened Derek McInnes ahead of their rearranged William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final against holders Celtic on Sunday.
The coronavirus crisis ended the 2019-20 season in March and meant the last four matches were postponed until this weekend.
The Dons have started the Premiership season strongly, with only two defeats in 11 matches, and fought out a deserved 3-3 draw with champions Celtic at Pittodrie last Sunday.
Boss McInnes said: “We have started the season with enough encouragement to suggest that we can have a good campaign, and Sunday is an opportunity to showcase that.
“While we were improving when the season was curtailed, there is no doubt we are in a better place going into this game.”
