Aberdeen’s Scottish Premiership season continued with a three-two win against Ross County at Victoria Park on Sunday.

Despite the first half sending off of Mark Reynolds, seeing Aberdeen play more than an hour with only 10-men, the Dons won a five-goal thriller to close the gap on leaders Celtic.

When Reynolds brought down Alex Schalk, as he went through, saw Aberdeen doubly punished when Ian McShane converted the freekick that followed but Adam Rooney had the Dons level soon after when he scored from the penalty spot when he was brought down himself.

Three-minutes later Shay Logan forced home to have Aberdeen two-one up at the break with the defender adding his second of the afternoon on the hour to open up a two-goal cushion.

McShane smashed in his second of the game too to give Ross hope with eight-minutes left but Aberdeen held on to move to within three-points of Celtic, who have a game in hand, and six-points ahead of Hearts in third.

These were the other results.
