'Perfect' - Celtic fans blown away by one moment from 26-yr-old in win v Aberdeen
Celtic fans on Twitter were completely blown away by James Forrest after the winger’s superb cross set up Moussa Dembele to head in the opening goal against Aberdeen at Pittodrie, in a match which the Bhoys won 2-0.
The Hoops had come close to opening the scoring on a few occasions before the breakthrough came in the 37th minute, Forrest beating his man on the wing and his cross was laid on a plate for Dembele to nod home his 10th goal of the season.
Here are some of the best reactions to the first-half moment from Twitter:

As for the match itself, the Hoops had missed good chances through Dembele and Tom Rogic and Olivier Ntcham hit the post before the Bhoys took the lead.
In a second-half of few chances, the Dons missed a good chance to equalise when Gary Mackay-Steven elected to shoot rather than pass to Stevie May who was in a position to score.
Kristoffer Ajer went down with a head injury when Mackay-Steven missed that chance, but thankfully he was okay to continue on.
Dorus de Vries was then forced into a good save from a close range McLean, before Mikael Lustig and Ajer managed to clear the danger.
Lustig was then sent-off for a second bookable offence with 15 minutes to go, as the Hoops had to dig in for the three points.
The Hoops then killed the game off when Tierney smashed home the second goal with a brilliant finish after a breakaway.
Aberdeen sub Sam Cosgrove was then sent-off for a terrible challenge on Scott Brown as the Dons went to pieces.
