What channel is Aberdeen v Celtic on? Kick-off time, TV and stream details, team news

Celtic put their 19-game unbeaten run in the Scottish Premiership on the line when they travel to Pittodrie to face Aberdeen on Wednesday evening.

Ange Postecoglou’s side are one point clear of Rangers at the top of the table after following up last week’s dominant Old Firm victory, which saw them leapfrog their title rivals, with another clinical display in the 4-0 win at Motherwell on Sunday.

Celtic are currently the highest-scoring team in the division but are also keeping the goals out, with the clean sheet at Fir Park their third in a row as the Hoops continue to impress at both ends of the pitch.
