Aberdeen welcome Champions Celtic to Pittodrie for the club’s final home match of the season on Sunday.

The Dons have had an indifferent season this season but have tried to turn their form around in the second half of the season but they have had one too many draws.

The Dandy Dons can only look at what Hearts achieved this season and wonder if someone would put the same kind of money into their club as Mr Romanov has done at Tynecastle,then they may have been the team to split the Old Firm but congratulations to Hearts they have deserved their success this season.

I am sure that Jimmy Calderwood would love some more money to add to this squad as he knows that he will lose quality players like Kevin McNaughton and perhaps Ferne Snoyl,as no one knows what is happening with his situation as yet.

I am sure that the Pittodrie faithful will give Kevin their full support in his final match with the club but they will have to sit and watch another talented player leaving the club but will he walk on to the bus to Glasgow after the match or is England or Europe a more likely destination ?

The Celtic Manager and former Dons favourite also will receive a warm welcome from the fans who once worshiped Gordon when he was a terror of both the Old Firm defence’s in his time at Pittodrie as well as Europe’s elite !

Let’s hope for a good entertaining match to end the season with and both sets of supporters get value for money,as these teams can deliver.

Vital Quotes:

Jimmy Calderwood would have liked European Football for Aberdeen but he has something to build on for next season.

Kevin McNaughton in his last match for the Dons,good luck Kevin.

Celtic Team News:

Celtic may well be losing some players in the summer so Gordon Strachan may give the squad players that are leaving a run out or he may pick his best 11 to end the season on a high?

Player to watch: Stan Petrov

Stan Petrov in his last match in a Celtic shirt will be the one to watch although Celtic have a number of class players than must be watched.Shaun Maloney-double award winner is a class act and is another dangerous Celt.
