Aberdeen’s Warnock: No Longer in Celtic and Rangers’ Shadow

Celtic and Rangers used to dominate Aberdeen, but according to new Dons manager Neil Warnock, times have changed.

Warnock, who recently took over at Pittodrie, experienced his first taste of Scottish football with a narrow 2-1 defeat against Rangers at Ibrox on Tuesday. Despite the loss, Philippe Clement’s side moved level on points with Celtic at the top of the Premiership, albeit temporarily.

Reflecting on Aberdeen’s recent performances, Warnock noted, “A few years ago, I would say they [Celtic and Rangers] were miles ahead of us. I don’t see that now. They’re better than us, but with the right attitude and tactical approach, we can challenge them.”

Aberdeen’s draw against Celtic last weekend showcased their potential under interim manager Peter Leven, prompting Warnock to express his ambition of winning the Scottish Cup. “I’d like to win it,” he stated. “We’ve seen us play against Celtic and Rangers, both winnable games.”

Looking ahead to their upcoming Scottish Cup fifth-round fixture against Bonnyrigg Rose, Warnock emphasized the importance of maintaining a positive mindset and tactical awareness.

Meanwhile, Livingston boss David Martindale clarified his recent remarks about Derek Adams leaving Ross County, asserting that his intention was not to personally attack Adams. Martindale explained that his comments were aimed at prolonging the “unhappy environment” at Ross County, as Livingston continues to battle relegation.

Livingston currently sits six points behind Ross County at the bottom of the Premiership table.
