Conso: Dons Will Challenge Celtic

Aberdeen's player of the year last term is delighted with the way his team have been performing, as the Reds got back on track after their Dingwall defeat to crush St Mirren in Paisley.

Celtic needed a lucky late winner to down the Dons at Parkhead on the opening day - and Aberdeen aim to take revenge and top spot in the SPL when the sides meet on Saturday.

Considine said: "When you look at what’s happening at Hearts, and Rangers going from the league, there is a chance for teams like us to go and grab it.

"We have the squad to do it. It’s all about consistency and that’s something we have had this year.

"We hope everyone stays fit and we keep a regular team together.

"The top four at the very least should be realistic if we keep playing the way we are."
