Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers claims that Aberdeen are very dangerous on the counter attack.
The Bhoys face an away match against Aberdeen on Saturday in the Scottish Premiership, as the top two sides in the division meet.
Celtic currently have a seven point gap over their upcoming opponents and have also played a game less.
Rodgers’ side completed a 4-0 victory against Ross County on Tuesday and they remain the only unbeaten side in the top-flight, winning eight of their opening nine games.
Rodgers has pointed out the quality of Aberdeen and believes they play good football.
“We go into the game with big confidence but we respect Aberdeen. They are direct and play good football on the counter,” Rodgers said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Aberdeen have started the season well and look set to be Celtic’s nearest challengers for the title, after beating their Old Firm rivals Rangers 2-1 in their league meeting.
Celtic are trying to win their sixth consecutive league title and Rodgers has made a great start as manager since his summer appointment.
His side has been led by in-form striker Moussa Dembele, who has scored an impressive 15 goals in 21 appearances across all competitions.
