ABERDEEN were torn apart by a rampant Celtic side in full flow at the weekend – smashing four past the home side in the first half and making short work of the Dons.
While many agree Celtic were simply outstanding on the day – especially in the first half – Steven Thompson told BBC Sportscene he thought Aberdeen were embarrassing and that they lay down to Celtic.
Current Aberdeen star Craig Bryson has hit back at that suggestion and questions why a former pro would say that about a football team.
“What footballer is ever going to lie down?” he told RecordSport.
“Nobody is ever going to go into a game wanting to get beaten.
“What does it even mean? Lying down, what is that? Is that wanting to get beaten?
“We worked all week on a game-plan and a way we felt would help us get something from the game.
“So I don’t see how someone can say we went into the game and lay down.”
The second half was quiet but Celtic didn’t need to do much to make sure of the result. Aberdeen couldn’t live with Celtic on the day and that’s what it boils down to. It’s crazy how we saw the same team get five put past them at Ibrox and nothing like this gets brought up.
Thompson needs to behave himself.
