Andy Walker predicts Celtic clash v Aberdeen, reveals star man for crunch clash
Sky Sports Scottish Football pundit Andy Walker has predicted Celtic’s Scottish Premiership clash against Aberdeen on Sunday lunchtime
Writing in his column on the Sky Sports website, the former Hoops striker has predicted a comfortable 3-0 win for the Bhoys.
His key man for the match is Hoops skipper Scott Brown, who recently added the Scottish football writers’ player of the year award to the honours that he has received this season.
A win for the Bhoys against Derek McInnes’ side would give them four wins out of four for the season against the Dons.
While the game will see the Hoops lift the Scottish Premiership trophy, it is much more important for the Dons, who are only one point ahead of Rangers in the battle for second place in the league table.

The team selected by Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers will perhaps be one of the most intriguing aspects of this game, as with the Scottish Cup Final only a week away you would imagine that the Bhoys will be playing their strongest side in what is the final league match of the season. It is also going to be intriguing how the Hoops approach the match, as even though it is relatively meaningless overall for the Hoops, and more important for the Dons in the battle for second place, there will be a huge crowd there and the Hoops will want to put on a show worthy of the team that has been crowned Scottish champions for the seventh season in a row. Of course, the Hoops will also be hoping for no new injuries ahead of the cup final, with Odsonne Edouard set to miss out and doubts over Craig Gordon’s availability for the game next week.
