Aberdeen have been celebrating winning their first trophy in 19 years with an open top bus tour through the city centre.

An estimated 70,000 Dons fans took to the streets of the Granite City to welcome the Scottish League Cup winners, who beat Inverness in a penalty shoot-out at Celtic Park last Sunday.

The bus carrying the management team, the players and the trophy left Albyn Place at just after 1pm - led by a pipe band - and slowly made its way down Union Street to the Town House for a civic reception.

And the success could continue for Derek McInnes' side as they are also through to the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup and currently lie second in the Scottish Premiership table.

McInnes told Sky Sports News: "As far as you could see it was so deep with supporters and it's been a great response from every one of them - all the way down there - so it's a good memory for myself, the players and the supporters alike.

"I think it's important we try and drive home that momentum. It's great to have days like this but hopefully we can have more of the same going forward and not wait so long next time.

"I think it's important that working together and working hard, we can maybe have more days like this."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
