Hamilton 0 Aberdeen 3: Visitors record comfortable win despite goal-line controversy

Aberdeen won 3-0 at 10-man Hamilton but there was controversy as the officials failed to spot a shot that appeared well over the goal-line.

Two goals inside the first 10 minutes gave Aberdeen the springboard for a 3-0 Scottish Premiership win at 10-man Hamilton, but it was a goal not given that provided the main talking point from a routine win.

Derek McInnes' side moved to within three points of leaders Celtic with victory but should have had the game won with a third goal by half-time, but the officials failed to spot Adam Rooney's effort had crossed the line - despite television replays showing it was well over. 

The visitors went ahead in the sixth minute when Andrew Considine bundled a shot home from close range, and that lead was doubled less than two minutes later when Niall McGinn crossed for Ryan Jack to register his third league goal of the season. 

Rooney's shot from 12 yards then hit the underside of the crossbar and bounced down over the line before coming back out, but the goal was not given. 

Hamilton played the last half-an-hour with 10 men following a second booking for Jesus Garcia Tena and, after substitute David Goodwillie had seen an effort ruled out for offside, McGinn added a third two minutes from time.
