Dons Humiliated as Celtic Rack Up 7
Celtic cruised to their biggest win of the season, 7-0 against a poor Dons side. Following the defeat, Aberdeen now lie 6 points adrift at the bottom of the league, with only 1 point so far in this campaign.

First half goals from Israeli international Eyal Berkovic and a brace from Swede Henrik Larsson made it three nil at the break, and comfortable for the Celts.

Larsson completed his hat-trick early in the second half before being substituted. Mark Viduka, the Australian international, then went on to score a hat-trick of his own, and put the game beyond any reasonable doubt, 7-0 the final score. Incidentally, no Scots were on the score sheet despite the high score line.

Ebbe Skovdahl said after the game that he felt frustrated to be beaten so easily, and now the Dane must try and pick up the pieces, and try and secure Aberdeen's first league win of the season.
