Two Aberdeen fans were caught watching their side’s Scottish Premiership opener against Rangers from a CHERRY PICKER on Saturday.
The 2020/21 campaign kicked off north of the border this weekend, with all games played behind closed doors due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Aberdeen got their season underway against Steven Gerrard’s Rangers in an eerily empty Pittodrie Stadium, as they took to the field for the first time since February.
But that didn’t stop two naughty Dons supporters from watching their beloved side in the flesh… although they were spotted by club officials.
Aberdeen commercial director Robert Wicks shared a picture on social media of his view of the stadium, pointing out the enterprising pair of fans who were sneaking a peak of the match from over the top of one of the stands.
The supporters can both be seen wearing face masks – doing their bit for the fight against coronavirus, at least – and hanging an Aberdeen banner over the side of their elevated platform.
They even appeared to have a half-time break, as they disappeared from view after the first 45 minutes, although it is claimed they were instructed to come down and leave by local police.
Unfortunately for them, their side started the season with a defeat as Rangers took three points back to the Ibrox with a 1-0 victory.
Former Liverpool winger Ryan Kent got the only goal of the game, as Gerrard’s side aim to challenge Old Firm rivals Celtic for the Scottish title.
