Celtic went into one of their biggest tests of the domestic season at Pittodrie tonight – but needed to wait just two minutes for their opening goal.
The newly-crowned Premiership champions went to the home of their nearest challengers defending their unbeaten record, and aiming to become the first team to finish a Scottish league season without losing a single game since 1899.
But if Brendan Rodgers’ side were feeling the pressure, they certainly didn’t show it, and from the first corner of the game, Leigh Griffiths whipped in a delicious delivery and Boyata simply couldn’t miss.
It might have been from close range, but what a finish eh?

A year ago it looked like the centre-back’s career in Glasgow was over, but that’s his fifth strike of the campaign and he’s definitely cemented his place as an important player for the Hoops.
What do you think of the goal?
