10 May ~ Aberdeen welcome Celtic to Pittodrie today, having been in second place behind the Scottish champions for the majority of the second half of the season, though they did lead the table briefly in January. On April 23, 1980 these teams were also the top two in Scotland, with second-place Aberdeen travelling to Celtic Park unbeaten in ten games (including a win at the same ground earlier in the month). In front of a packed crowd, Alex Ferguson’s Aberdeen ran out 3-1 winners with goals from Steve Archibald, Mark McGhee and Gordon Strachen. Celtic’s goal was scored by George McCluskey. As a result Aberdeen overtook Celtic at the top of the table and stayed there, winning their first title under Ferguson. The match highlights are split into five parts below.
