Celtic Go Nap at Pittodrie
The Dons league campaign got off to the worst possible start as Celtic ran riot at Pittodrie, with a scoreline that in no way flattered the visitors. Goals from Larsson and Viduka (2) had the Bhoys in easy street by the break and when Eoin Jess saw his 46th minute spot kick saved by Gould, you knew it just wasn't going to be the Dons day.

Larsson added number four with a penalty and with a couple of minutes remaining, substitute Burchill completed the rout with a left foot drive to leave new boss Ebbe Skovdahl in no doubt as to the magnitude of the task facing him.
