CELTIC will face Aberdeen in their pre-Chistmas Premiership encounter in front of a sold-out Parkhead tomorrow.

The champions are aiming for their TENTH successive league victory when they they take on Derek McInnes’ Dons.

Since their shock 2-0 loss at Livingston on October 6, Neil Lennon’s side have rampaged their unstoppable way to maximum points with victories over Ross County (6-0), Aberdeen (4-0), St Mirren (2-0), Motherwell (2-0), Livingston (4-0), Ross County (4-1), Hamilton Accies (2-1), Hibs (2-0) and Hearts (2-0).

In the game at Pittodrie, the home side had no answer to Hoops’ ferocious firepower and Scotland’s title kings were four goals ahead by half-time with Odsonne Edouard, Jeremie Frimpong – with his first for the club – James Forrest and Mohamed Elyounoussi on target.

Tomorrow’s game will be the Hoops’ last outing before Christmas Day and the club are urging the supporters to get there early for the 3pm kick-off and join in the festive fun.

The remaining matches of 2019 against St Mirren in Paisley on Boxing Day and Steven Gerrard’s Ibrox outfit in Paradise a week on Sunday are also sell-outs as Lennon’s men zero in on the magical nine in a row.

Celtic open the 2020 home league campaign with a fixture against Ross County at Parkhead on January 25.
