McGhee may field weakened team against Celtic

Aberdeen boss Mark McGhee has admitted he may field a weakened team against Celtic in Saturday's Scottish Premier League encounter.

McGhee, whoran out for both Aberdeen and Celtic during his playing career, believes the SPL clash is less important than the Dons' Scottish Cup fifth-round replay against Raith three days later, according to quotes in the Scottish Sun.

"We do not necessarily have to beat Celtic on Saturday to finish fourth in the SPL and make Europe," McGhee said. We do have to beat Raith in the Cup.

"We need our strongest squad to be fit for Tuesday so I will need to be careful who I pick. It might be I'll make changes for Saturday to make sure the best team is clear to face Raith. It's something I have to look at carefully.''

McGhee is under pressure to beat Raith, with the Dons having crashed out of the Scottish Cup to lower league opponents more than once in recent years.

But resting players may not go down well with Rangers, whose lead over Celtic at the top of the SPL was cut to eight points on Wednesday night.
