Defender Andrew Considine scored a hat-trick as Aberdeen hammered a dismal Dundee side to ensure Celtic must wait to be crowned Premiership champions.

A win for Dee would have handed the title to Celtic, but their visitors put that prospect to bed in the first half.

A Considine double and goals from Adam Rooney and Kenny McLean had Derek McInnes' men 4-0 up at the break.

Ryan Jack hit the fifth before Niall McGinn tapped home and Considine completed his hat-trick.

Aberdeen are 11 points clear of Rangers in third, while Dundee are eighth.

      Dundee went down to a Gary MacKay-Stevens penalty in the 75th minute but not before they had chances to put themselves ahead in this tie.

      Sofien Moussa spurned two chances either side of half time while his strike partner Jean Mendy dragged a shot wide when he was bearing down on goal. Josh Meekings also had a glorious chance to put us ahead in the second half but he failed to make proper contact from the corner with his head.

      "It's a sore one to take. In this match we had our opportunities to put ourselves in front, so we've only got ourselves to blame,” said McCann.

      “The biggest disappointment for me is that I don't mind keepers making saves, but not to hit the target is poor. Aberdeen are a good side so you have to take those chances when they come along.
      "Moussa's in the first half when he skies it over the bar then Mendy's, with some good play, when they don't hit the target from those opportunities - that's the frustrating part.
      "It annoys you because you just want the boys to have a wee bit of composure, I can’t give them composure. We haven't done that today, and we paid the price."

      “If you create three 100 per cent chances and you don’t work the keeper once that’s where you fall down.

      “The guys just need to slow down and it’s sore because we could have been sitting with six points instead of none.”

      The Dark Blues are currently on their worse ever run of defeats against the Dons with nine straight losses and we haven't tasted victory over them in twelve since Thomas Konrad and David Clarkson scored to give us a 2-1 win in the Scottish Cup 4th round back in 2014.

      If we exclude that victory in the cup, we have went a full NINETEEN matches since we last managed a league victory over the Dons. This came at Dens when Neil Barrett scored the only goal of the match way back in 2004!

      That's some depressing reading right there!

      PREVIEW

      DUNDEE started off their campaign by gifting St Mirren al three points last Saturday.

      Last season’s attacking options reared their ugly head with it being a case of déjà vu for players, management and supporters. Then we had the minute of madness at the back that ultimately gifted the home side all three points.

      It would be very harsh however to start writing off players and team with some knee-jerk comments. Of course, the Dunfermline game gave us an indication that we were severely lacking in some areas but hopefully when we recruit players to fill these voids, then we will see a team that will hopefully improve on last terms league position.

      Roarie Deacon is back in training but he is still a few weeks away from being included in the matchday squad.

      ABERDEEN started off their Premiership campaign with a 1-1 draw against ten-man The Rangers last weekend.

      The Dons played for the best part of 80 minutes with a man advantage but despite this, they needed an injury time equaliser with their only shot on target.

      Derek McInnes team have on course been on European duty this summer when they came up against English side Burnley. They certainly didn’t let themselves down by more than matching their opponents from the self-proclaimed ‘Best league in the world.’

      Unfortunately, despite a 1-1 draw at home, Burnley would proceed to the next round of the competition but they would need extra-time to get passed he har working Dons.

      Scott McKenna will miss out due to injury who will be out for around six to eight weeks and joins long term casualties Mark Reynolds and Tommie Hoban along with Shay Logan who is serving a suspension.
