McInnes sends out a warning to Celtic as Premiership race heats up
By John Reid
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is hoping that Aberdeen can go on a run of winning games as the battle for the Scottish Premiership title continues.
Aberdeen are currently only one point behind Celtic, having bounced back from a recent defeat to Celtic.
Whilst Celtic were drawing 1-1 at home against Kilmarnock, Aberdeen responded to losing 3-0 against the Hoops with a come from behind 2-1 win over Ross County.
Ahead of Saturday’s visit to Hamilton, McInnes spoke about the prospect of Aberdeen sustaining their recent good results.
“Hopefully we can now go on another winning run,” he said to the Aberdeen Evening Express

“If we win at Hamilton we can be happy going into the international break.
“If we can get another win, other than the Celtic game, it would be a good start to the season when we are into November.”
Aberdeen may well have the on-loan Celt Ryan Christie fit for this game, as he bids to overcome a knee injury.
The speculation regarding McInness’ future continues, as he remains the favourite to become Rangers manager.
As yet no talks have begun between Rangers and Aberdeen, so McInnes remains at Pittodrie for the time being.
This situation may change during the two weeks of the international break.
Rangers caretaker manager Graeme Murty is once again in charge of the Ibrox club for their weekend game against Partick Thistle.
