Celtic 3 - 2 Aberdeen

HT Score: Celtic 1 - 0 Aberdeen

Aberdeen scorers: Mayer 55, Perry 82.

15/05/1999 | KO:

The Dons came from behind twice only to be beaten by a strike from substitute Mark Burchill.

The Dons got off to the worst possible start when Regi Blinker slotted home in the opening minute.

It stayed that way until Andreas Mayer levelled with a great shot in 55 minutes after good work from Russell Anderson. Five minutes later Tommy Johnson restored Celtic's advantage.

With eight minutes remaining Mark Perry, now third top scorer, looked to have salvaged a draw when he fired home after Jonathan Gould spilled an Eoin Jess shot.

Chances of a Dons point evaporated though when youngster Mark Burchill shot home in the 88th minute with what proved to be the winner.

Jim Hamilton and Michael Hart were replaced by Derek Young and Dennis Wyness in the second half.
