In their midweek victory against Dundee at Tynecastle, a series of withdrawals through injury persuaded Levein that two 16-year-olds, Harry Cochrane and Anthony McDonald, should be part of a midfield that also included 19-year-old Lewis Moore.

The Edinburgh fixture always promised to be a tricky one for Brendan Rodgers' tired side, yet first-half goals from Harry Cochrane, who became the club's youngest ever league scorer, and Kyle Lafferty set the platform for the hosts to run out comfortable winners.

Celtic's loss will give Aberdeen hope they can end the club's recent dominance of Scottish football, Derek McInnes having rejected the chance to take over at Rangers to stay with the second-placed Dons.

Celtic were thumped 4-0 by a rampant Hearts at Tynecastle.
