  11. FULL-TIME Aberdeen 2-1 Celtic

    Aberdeen claim their second win over Celtic this season after first-half goals from Jonny Hayes and Simon Church.

    The result cuts Celtic's lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to three points and both sides still have 14 games to play.

    Aberdeen players celebrating
  12. GOAL Aberdeen 2-1 Celtic (Griffiths)

    Leigh Griffiths sidesteps a couple of challenges and finds the bottom right corner with a low shot. Too little too late?

    Martin Dowden

    BBC Scotland at Pittodrie

    "Aberdeen deserve this. They've continued to attack with Celtic appearing largely toothless and lacking in creation and desire.

    "Ronny Deila will be criticised but Derek McInnes should take the spotlight. He's done a magnificent job with this Aberdeen side."

  14. ADDED TIME

    Aberdeen 2-0 Celtic

    Three minutes of stoppage time begin.

  15. SUBSTITUTIONS

    Aberdeen 2-0 Celtic

    Cammy Smith takes over from opening goalscorer Jonny Hayes.

    Scott Allan came on moments ago for Celtic in place of Mikael Lustig.

  16. Post update

    Aberdeen 2-0 Celtic

    Erik Sviatchenko ventures forward to boost the Celtic attack, is found by Scott Brown's reverse pass and then fizzes a low ball across the face of goal. No takers for the visitors.

    SMS Message: This has been coming for Celtic. Very lightweight, in both boxes. Griffiths needs help. I cannot believe the blind faith many fans have shown deila/board. How can other top five sides assemble decent defences on a shoestring, but not us. from Chris, Mount Florida
