Aberdeen were punished by a ruthless and rampant Celtic at Pittodrie as the Hoops made it eight wins in a row in the Granite City thanks to a 4-0 victory.
The Dons were swept aside by the treble-treble winners who effectively put the game beyond the home side by the break after scoring all four goals in first half.
Dons boss Derek McInnes made one change from the side which beat Motherwell 3-0 with Connor McLennan replacing James Wilson who dropped to the bench.
Celtic made two changes from the side that beat Lazio in the Europa League on Thursday. Tom Rogic replaced the suspended Ryan Christie while Jeremie Frimpong replaced Hatem Elhamed who dropped to the bench.
It took the Hoops only 11 minutes to make the breakthrough and it was Odsonne Edouard who delivered it, running past the Dons defenders one by one before beating Joe Lewis with a low drive from the edge of the box.
It was 2-0 four minutes later as full back Frimpong scored his first goal for the club, scrambling Tom Rogic’s deflected effort over the line.
Rogic was involved in the third in the 37th minute, playing a through ball for Mohamed Elyounoussi who took a touch before James Forrest carried the ball forward to beat Lewis.
Aberdeen’s miserable day was complete in the final minute of the first half when Elyounoussi chested down a Forrest cross before firing home the fourth.
The only positive was that the scoring stopped at four.
