WILLIE MILLER doesn’t reckon Aberdeen can have any complaints about the Betfred League Cup Final loss to Celtic.
The Dons legend watched the Hoops win 3-0 and admitted Brendan Rodgers’ side could have scored more.
Miller said: “Celtic dominated throughout and thoroughly deserved their victory.
“They might have added to their three goals, as well.
“I think the Aberdeen fans will feel let down because their team didn’t perform to the level they are capable of.
“It can happen in Cup Finals. But the noises that were coming out of the club and the feeling among the fans was that this team was good enough to make a game of it and give Celtic a run for their money.
“But they just didn’t do it and the first-half was hugely disappointing.
“Celtic dominated possession and I thought Aberdeen sat off and didn’t get up against them.
“They didn’t put them under enough pressure, didn’t get close enough to the ball and when you do that to a team like Celtic – and they get two goals – it’s really difficult to come back.”
However, Miller can see a quick chance for redemption – a victory over Rangers in Glasgow on Saturday, which would be a first win at Ibrox in 25 years.
He added: “The Cup Final will be dulled if they can end that long run at Ibrox.

“They are up against a team that believes they are the second best side in the Premiership and this is an opportunity for them to show what they think about that.

“They failed to live up to the occasion at Hampden, so the question now is being asked if they can handle it better at Ibrox.”
