Ebene News – GB – The need for Aberdeen’s Celtic victory was not lost against midfielder Dean Campbell

Dean Campbell played in Aberdeen’s last victory at Celtic Park and although the situation is different this time around, the need is the same

The 1-0 win over Celtic in May 2018, which was Brendan Rodgers’ first home loss in tenure, also secured second place for the Dons on the final day of the season

A win this time around would provide much-needed respite for an Aberdeen side in desperate need of form, as their push for European football hit the skids

“It will be a different atmosphere on that day,” said Campbell. “We haven’t played Celtic Park this season without fans so it will be a different experience

“We just have to do business on the pitch It’s 11 on 11, and we have to make sure our quality is there and look to win the game. I think in a way that day- there we ruined the party

“We needed a result to finish second We went there with our own goals in mind and we didn’t really care about their opportunity It turned out to be a fantastic occasion for us There was a big party afterwards with our fans

“Every game in this league is tough but we think we have a very good team. We are really confident that we can reverse this run and have a good run towards the end of the season

“So try to achieve our goals which is to finish above the Hibs and as high as possible in the board”

The trip to Parkhead comes amid one of Aberdeen’s worst runs in years, with a win in nine games and no goals in their last five

This has increased the pressure on manager Derek McInnes, but Campbell maintains the team stands together to guide them

“As a club we stand united in this difficult time,” he said “We don’t really listen to the noise from outside – we are just focusing on overturning this race

“We believe in each other and we will help each other to make it happen We still have a lot to play by the end of the season so the focus is on the games and trying to set up a race

Campbell made his sixth start to the season in the weekend’s 0-0 draw with St Mirren, bringing his tally to 52 for the hometown club

Over the past 18 months, he’s seen Craig Bryson and Funso Ojo come and go, as well as Dylan McGeouch and Ross McCrorie arrive to store the Dons midfielder

The 19-year-old admits he had to be patient to seize the opportunity but is not discouraged by the competition for places

“I work hard behind the scenes and believe in my abilities. I have no doubts that I can have a positive impact on the team,” said Campbell

“It was about staying patient, waiting for my opportunities and seizing them I’m confident when I step on the pitch I can help the team I’m looking to keep doing this as the season progresses

“Players from other teams have proven they can already play at a high level. It’s up to me to try to reach that level and compete with them as much as I can

“(I can) use them to push myself and use them to try and make me a better player, which I hope I was able to do”

With the strong impression McCrorie has made since joining Rangers and the continued development of Lewis Ferguson, the future of the Aberdeen midfielder looks bright

“We have all been involved in many Scottish youth teams so there is potential there to build a partnership,” Campbell added
