Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has revealed that he believes that it would be a disappointing season for Celtic if they do not secure the treble this season, according to a report on the Daily Record.

The Hoops are on course to secure a double treble this season after claiming all the domestic silverware last season and have already won the Scottish League Cup this campaign.

However, McInnes has challenged his Aberdeen side to be the ones to end their fantastic run.

Celtic are so far ahead resources-wise that I think it will be disappointing to them if they don’t win a Treble. They should be favourites in every domestic competition. Huge favourites.

It’s up to the rest to find a way to stop that and get our own clubs winning something. That’s the challenge for us all.

Celtic beat McInnes’ Aberdeen side in both cup finals last season and are currently eight points clear of them in the league table.

The Hoops have dominated domestically but have struggled to leave a lasting impression in the UEFA Champions League. Finishing third in the group stages has meant that Brendan Rodgers’ side will now compete in the UEFA Europa League this season.
