Celtic’s 2-1 win at Aberdeen certainly wasn’t short of talking points with the magic of You Tube allowing supporters to share, enjoy and debate the issues.

The ninety plus minutes of action on the park sparked plenty of comment with the debate defined by whether your glass is half full or otherwise.

Few things in football are sweater than a last minute winning goal- when it’s against one of your closest rivals and it sends you to the top of the league it makes that winning feeling all the better.

After three challenging months on the domestic front Virgil van Dijk’s goal sent Celtic to the top of the table with the Dutchman scoring with the calmness that is normally associated with his defending.

Calmness isn’t a word that could be used for the goal celebrations or the scenes at the final whistle when the Celtic players raced over to join in with the fans singing and dancing.

John Guidetti may have failed to hit the target but the Swede looked up for a party as he gestured with the supporters before dancing away with Leigh Griffiths.

Other players were quickly on the scene to send the visiting support back down the road in full voice after some priceless bonding which saw Deila remain fully clothed.

The performance was far from vintage but the win should increase the belief within the Celtic team while also putting doubt into the minds of the Aberdeen squad.

After beating Celtic twice already this year a home win would have given some ground for believing that Aberdeen could mount a challenge for the title but the manner of the defeat will now rankle with Derek McInnes’ squad for the next fortnight.

Over the last three seasons Celtic have traditionally been strongest at this stage of the season with the manner of yesterday’s win suggesting that that pattern will be repeated again this term.

Celtic went into the last international break on the back of losing to Hamilton Accies but have bounced back with four straight wins in the league as well as progressing in two cup competitions- similar form after the current break should pave the way for more celebrations towards four-in-a-row.
