'He’s unplayable' - Celtic winger pinpoints Aberdeen dangerman ahead of clash

On-loan Celtic winger Ryan Christie has warned his future team-mates to beware of the form of his current team-mate at Aberdeen, Gary Mackay-Steven.

Mackay-Steven scored a hat-trick against Hibs in a 4-1 for the Dons last week as they cut the gap at the top of the Scottish Premiership table to just two points, although the Bhoys do have a game in hand.

The stage is set for the upcoming Celtic versus Aberdeen top of the clash at Celtic Park on Saturday and Christie – who cannot play in the game – feels that Mackay-Steven could be a major player in the game.

“When Gary is in that kind of mood he’s unplayable”, he said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“We get to see it in training every day, he’s unbelievable at times and his play for Shinnie’s goal was excellent.

“He scored three good ones himself, so we were all delighted for him.”

Mackay-Steven has a fairly disappointing two years at Celtic before joining Derek McInnes’ side in the summer.

The Hoops will be looking to increase their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to five points in their upcoming game against bottom of the table Partick Thistle.

Any slip-ups would further dent confidence following the 4-0 defeat to Hearts and end of the unbeaten domestic record at 69 games, and give Aberdeen a boost ahead of their trip to Celtic Park.

The Dons don’t have the best league record in the East End of Glasgow, having not won there since 2004.
