Aberdeen F.C. Celtic F.C. Scottish Cup

CELTIC will be looking to hold on to top spot when they face Aberdeen. Neil Lennon's men returned to the Premiership summit after their 6-0 win over Ross County and Rangers' 1-1 draw at Hearts. Derek McInnes' Reds picked up a confidence boosting win at Motherwell in their last league outing and could end the day as high as third with victory over the league leaders. The Hoops head into the showdown on the back of a last-gasp Europa League win over Italian outfit Lazio. When is Aberdeen vs Celtic?

Follow @insidefutbol Fixture: Aberdeen vs Celtic Competition: Scottish Premiership Kick-off: 12:15 (UK time) Celtic have confirmed their starting line-up and substitutes to go up against Aberdeen in a Scottish Premiership fixture at Pittodrie this afternoon. The champions are level on points with rivals Rangers at the top of the Premiership standings, but with the Gers only playing later today, can go clear by beating Aberdeen. The Bhoys saw off Italian giants Lazio on Thursday night in the Europa League and will take the feel-good factor into this afternoon's game. Celtic have beaten Aberdeen at Pittodrie on their last eight visits and have scored at least three goals on each of their last three visits to the ground. Boss Neil Lennon has Fraser Forster in goal, while at full-back he trusts in Jeremie Frimpong and Boli Bolingoli. Central defence sees Christopher Jullien and Kristoffer Ajer team up, while Scott Brown slots into midfield. Tom Rogic is also selected, while Callum McGregor, James Forrest and Mohamed Elyounoussi will support Odsonne Edouard. If Lennon needs to try to change things from the substitutes' bench then he has options available, including Scott Sinclair and Moritz Bauer. Celtic Team vs Aberdeen Forster, Frimpong, Jullien, Ajer, Bolingoli, Brown, Rogic, McGregor, Forrest, Elyounoussi, Edouard Substitutes: Gordon, Bitton, Hayes, Elhamed, Bauer, Sinclair, Bayo Celtic hero Chris Sutton has branded Aberdeen EMBARRASSING as they trail the Hoops 4-0 at half-time. Celts have stormed to a staggering lead thanks to goals from Odsonne Edouard, Jeremie Frimpong, James Forrest and Mo Elyounoussi. Derek McInnes' side, meanwhile, have barely kicked the ball and been dismantled in the first 45 minutes. During his commentary work for BT Sport, Sutton let loose on the Dons. And he says they've let themselves down with their horrific first-half showing. When Celtic's fourth goal went in, Sutton said: "Well, Aberdeen are red faced, they've been embarrassing. "Celtic, though, have been brilliant," Fellow co-commentator Stephen Craigan also insisted McInnes himself would be reeling with his team's horror show. He added: "[Derek McInnes] will be embarrassed, Aberdeen have been pummelled."
