Video: Derek McInnes Hopes Celtic Go On to Complete Treble Treble

Derek McInnes hopes Celtic can go on to complete the treble treble and give Aberdeen European football next season.

The Dons manager led his side to a victory on the final day of the Scottish Premiership campaign, beating Hibs 2-1 at Easter Road.

They knew they had to better Kilmarnock’s result against Rangers to have any chance of securing third spot and Europa League football next term.

But that was impossible as Killie won 2-1 themselves at Rugby Park, meaning Aberdeen had to settle for fourth.

Hope of European football isn’t completely lost for Aberdeen though, as a Celtic win against Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final next weekend would see them enter the Europa League qualifiers.

And that’s what McInnes is hoping for:

That definitely is an odd thing to hear McInnes saying considering he’s manager of one of Celtic’s rivals and a former Rangers player too.

But it’s all about Aberdeen for him and European qualification football would be another big achievement in his time as manager of the Pittodrie side.
