Boss Derek McInnes today praised loan star Wes Burns for his attacking threat against Celtic.
Aberdeen lost 4-1 at Parkhead but caused the defending champions major problems.
Two late goals, via a contentious penalty and free-kick, gave the Glasgow clash a flattering scoreline.
McInnes was convinced the Dons looked the more likely to score at 2-1 with on-loan Bristol City attacker Burns the main threat.
He said: “Wes Burns was a constant threat against Celtic when he had grass to work with.
“We had a couple of moments other than the goal from Adam Rooney.
“At one each and 2-1, I thought we looked the team more likely to go on and get the next goal at Parkhead.
“We were very aggressive with our work and looked like going on to get that equaliser.”
