ANDREW Considine today warned champions Celtic the Dons aim to push them even harder in the title race this season.
Aberdeen topped the Premiership table at the turn of the year last season but still finished 17 points behind the Hoops.
Considine, 28, reckons the Dons are even stronger now after key summer signings, and can take the Premiership title fight right to the wire.
He said: “The league is absolutely massive for us this year as we can push Celtic further.
“Every year we have come on and on.
“The squad is a lot stronger now than it was last season.
“As we progressed through Europe this season we also got stronger.
“Hopefully we can take that into the league campaign this season because it would be great to push Celtic even further this time.
“It would also be great to get a trophy this season and have another trip down Union Street.
“But for now we will concentrate on the league campaign.”
