Niall McGinn scored a hat-trick as Aberdeen beat Dundee

McGinn produced the goods with an outstanding second-half showing against rock-bottom Dundee, who remain nine points adrift at the foot of the table in their fight to avoid relegation back to the Irn-Bru First Division.

Northern Ireland ace McGinn broke the deadlock a minute after the restart and put the rampant Reds further ahead in the 68th minute with a free header. Dundee substitute Mark Stewart hit a consolation strike with eight minutes left but McGinn dashed any hopes of a comeback and completed his treble in the 88th minute.
