Billy McKay's opening goal was cancelled out by Josh Magennis' double but Gary Warren drew the away side level before McKay's second goal won the game for Butcher's charges.

"We were joint-bottom of the league on four points with Dundee at one point. We've come a long way in a short space of time and it's all down to these boys," said Butcher.

"It was a poor first half today. It took us a while to get into our stride, and it certainly wasn't pretty.

"Aberdeen changed their shape for the second half and it actually suited us better. We were able to cope better with how they played in the second half.

"Unfortunately we went a goal behind, but we showed great resilience and character to come from behind, and they've shown that all season."

Butcher admitted he would have been happy to settle for a draw when they came back to 2-2 but his players were keen to push for the winner.

"I did say on the bench I would take 2-2 when we equalised," he added. "The players came over and said 'We can score more goals here' and the chances they made, we could have scored more.

"We've gone to both of the top two now, and beaten both of them on their own patch. It's a great story.

"Even at the start of the season when we were drawing and losing games, we knew we weren't far away. They're an incredible bunch of players."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
