DEREK McINNES has seen Aberdeen lose all three league games against Celtic while conceding eight goals and scoring zero in this campaign.
However, the Dons boss, who watched his side draw 1-1 with Sevco Rangers at Pittodrie last night, believes his team have a chance of beating the champions on Sunday to secure the best of the rest mantle.
McInnes’ men are a point ahead of the Ibrox side and a win in the east end of Glasgow would secure second top spot.
After last night’s stalemate, he said: “We hadn’t laid a glove on Rangers all season, we’ve got something on this occasion and played well. We are probably going to have to do that against Celtic.
“The league table doesn’t lie, so it’s still an opportunity for us. It will go to the last game and there are still going to be twists and turns and a bit of drama, but the fact is we’re in the mix going into the last game.
“It’s fascinating stuff. It is exciting.”
Neil Lennon’s Hibs will draw level with third-top Sevco should they beat Hearts at Tynecastle this evening and ensure a three-way final-day battle for second place.
McInnes added: “I’ll be the biggest Hearts supporter than I’ve ever been and my whole family will be, too.”
