Celtic fans have taken to social media to comments made by Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes.
The Dons boss has claimed, as quoted by the Daily Record, that it will be ‘disappointing’ for the Hoops not to win the treble as they have more resources than the rest of Scottish football.
The Bhoys currently lead McInnes’ side by eight points in the Scottish Premiership table and have retained the Betfred Cup after a 2-0 win over Motherwell in November.
The remarks haven’t went down well with fans of the Scottish champions, who hone accusing the Aberdeen manager of ‘regularly celebrating second place’.
Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to McInnes’ comments:
Translation; 'I've ran out of ideas how to beat Celtic on the park so I'll try use the press instead.'

That'll be nice reading for his players, basically saying they are nowhere near Celtic…… What happened to them being challangers!! And he by resources he means players ????????????

To be fair Derek & Aberdeen are well versed in failure, nothing but glorified runners up who cant get the job done when it matters whether it be in europe cup finals or games against Celtic & Rangers they are failures

Well Derek McInnes would know plenty about flop seasons, so when he talks about his specialist subject we should listen

Celtic have played Aberdeen on two occasions so far this season, with the Hoops emerging victorious by the score of 3-0 in both games.
The teams are set to meet again at Pittodrie on the 25th of February, three days after the Bhoys’ Europa League last 32 second leg against Zenit.
The Hoops are currently in Dubai on their winter break, but return to action on January the 20th as they begin their defence of the Scottish Cup with a home tie against Championship side Brechin City, a match which may well feature the debut of new signing Marvin Compper.
