ABERDEEN are going for a treble of their own at Pittodrie tomorrow night.

Their first win of the season over close pals Rangers, a chance to clinch European football and a step towards finishing second.

No wonder captain Graeme Shinnie believes it to be his side’s biggest game.

"I think we knew it would come down to these two matches,” he said. “The draw against Hibs sets up nicely for Tuesday and it’s our biggest game of the season.

“I think the main thing is the fight for second. That’s what we want and to do that we need to beat Rangers, which would be nice as well.

“But our whole focus is on finishing second - that’s what means the most to us.

“It’s the most important game for fans, players and the staff.

“With the way the league has been this season, it’s been tough and second would be great. That’s our main focus going into Tuesday.”

Three points would secure a spot in the Europa League and while qualification to the group stages has been beyond Aberdeen in recent times, they want another crack at it.

“It’s so important for this club,” said Shinnie. “We always enjoy coming back to play in Europe and trying to compete at that level.

“Those games have been some of the best I’ve had at Aberdeen.”
