STEWART MILNE reckons Aberdeen can push Celtic “right to the end”.
The Pittodrie chairman’s side are two points adrift of the champions who have a game in hand.
The teams meet at Parkhead on Saturday and Milne insisted is side intend to make it as difficult as possible for Brendan Rodgers’ men to claim their seventh successive title.
The Dons supremo said: “We’re over halfway through the season and we’re right on their tails.
“We’ve got to make sure we focus on our own games and results for the rest of the season.
“I think if we do that effectively we’ll, hopefully, keep that pressure on right to the end.
“We’ve been looking to cut that gap for the last three to four years, pushing the boundaries as far as we possibly can.”
If the Hoops beat Partick Thistle in the east end of Glasgow tomorrow night they will move five points clear of Milne’s outfit.
Another three points on Saturday would see a realsitic gap of eight points between the champions and last season’s three-times runners-up in the domestic trophies.
