Hooper’s delicious cross-field pass was controlled and nudged towards goal by the Celtic captain in a flowing move, but as Brown shaped to score he was hauled down by Andrew Considine and referee Alan Muir pointed to the spot.While Stokes grabbed the ball for the penalty, Muir presented the shell-shocked Dons defender with a red card and his involvement was over after just 95 seconds.The drama didn’t end there – Aberdeen keeper Jamie Langfield saved Anthony Stokes’ resultant penalty.But with just 10 men to play against Celtic went at the home team like madmen and were ahead in the 12th minute as Hooper and Stokes played a brilliant one-two – and Hooper finished.
