After a long but exciting World Cup , it is now time for the return to the Scottish Premiership for current champions Celtic as they make the long trip up to Aberdeen for a challenging away match. 

After city rivals Rangers gained their crucial points against Hibernian in a hard fought 3-2 victory at their home stadium to shorten the Hoops gap at the top to six points , it is now up to Ange Postecoglou’s  to do the business at Pittodrie  and pull  the gap back to nine points. 

Postecoglou will be looking for Celtic to pull off a strong performance and will want the team to continue to dominate the teams in the league as the previously had done before the early winter break. 

When speaking to the media ahead of the match, Postecoglou said : “We obviously had a really strong start to the season in the league, and the key to that now is to keep improving and I don’t think there’s any reason why we shouldn’t.”  

One player who will be hoping for a strong performance will be Celtic’s number nine Sead Haksabanovic. Haksabonovic has had a firing start to his Celtic career and will be hoping to continue his current form. He was rewarded with the league’s player of the month for his performances in November. 

When speaking to the media, Haksabanovic said : “I would say there is more to come from me. I came without playing any games before I came & now I have some games in me, so hopefully I can improve every day out there training and in working hard. Hopefully I can do more & score more goals.”

Overall , the  match against Aberdeen is set out to be an entertaining one and Postecoglou and his team will be hoping to take the three points back to the east end of Glasgow and will be hoping to put on a show for the traveling support
