A Scott McDonald brace has helped Celtic overcome a dogged Aberdeen 3-1 in SPL action today. Aberdeen had shocked the visitors by taking the lead in the 22nd minute thanks to a well placed header from Christopher Maguire.
The second half saw Celtic enjoy a majority of the possession which included several excellent scoring opportunities.
Scott McDonald had toiled hard throughout the match without luck but that changed in the 72nd minute when he turned in a great pass from Andreas Hinkel with a sweetly timed first time right foot shot.
McDonald completed the scoring in injury time with a superb finish, outpacing the Aberdeen defence to latch onto a high Nakamura through ball and slot home his 50th goal for Celtic in his 95th appearance.
