Robbo Is Second Time Lucky

Celtic at Pittodrie was a pre-Christmas boost in the Premier Reserve League. The goals were scored by Ian Robertson, (who had recently recovered from injury), in the first half and by Ian Porteous after the break.
The first goal was a justified reward for Robertson who had what seemed a perfectly fair strike denied for an offside decision in the opening minutes. Just after that the Celtic 'keeper Ian Andrews dashed off his line to body check Porteous as the striker seemed likely to score. The Celtic player was booked for the offence but he then brilliantly saved from Selbie as the free kick produced a scoring chance.
The Aberdeen pressure paid off just before the interval when Robertson rode tackles as he moved in to beat Andrews from about 10 yards. The second goal which clinched it came with about 20 minutes left when Malcolm Thomson's long forward pass fed Porteous who netted from close in.
