Mac in a happy place

Celtic Aberdeen


To­day, ko 2.30pm

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.”
