Derek McInnes was sent to the stands today to join one of his coaching staff at Hampden.
The Aberdeen Boss lost it himself as his team lost all discipline on the park and two red cards proved that. Post-match the Aberdeen manager has said he was reacting to sectarian singing.

McInnes looks to be hiding behind this as he goes about his business in the post-match interview. He set up his team to be negative and get in Celtic’s faces but they couldn’t touch the champions. Their frustration grew and both sendings off were warranted and a result of his heavy-handed tactics. The perennial loser then got sent off himself, blaming the Celtic fans for this for singing a song his own fans were singing to Steven Gerrard just weeks prior.
The abhorrent chants from the Aberdeen fans on the day also not worth a mention by the Dons boss who was very selective and deflective.
