Gary Mackay-Steven explains why Celtic were never worried despite 'scrappy' first half

The 24-year-old was delighted with the Bhoys' 4-0 win over Aberdeen.

Celtic winger Gary Mackay-Steven admits his side were never worried despite a 'scrappy' first half against Aberdeen, according to the club's official Twitter feed.

The Bhoys faced the second-placed Dons in a huge Scottish Premiership clash on Sunday afternoon. In the end, it wasn't much of a clash as Celtic beat Aberdeen 4-0.

It was only 1-0 at half-time, though, and Mackay-Steven admits it was a scrappy first half. The Hoops were never worried, however, the 24-year-old says...

The victory leaves Celtic six points clear of Aberdeen with a game in hand over the Dons.

And such is the Bhoys' commanding position now, Mackay-Steven is naturally delighted with the situation Celtic have left themselves in.

A domestic treble is very much on the cards for Ronny Deila's side and the 24-year-old winger is pleased with the winning mentality the Hoops have acquired.

Up next for Celtic are St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday night, where, as Mackay-Steven says, the Bhoys could extend their lead over Aberdeen to nine points.

What a result they secured against the Dons - and what a position it's left them in.
