Emilio Izaguirre suffers a suspected broken ankle as Celtic beat Aberdeen 1-0 to go top of the SPL.

Celtic have topped the SPL after Anthony Stokes' second-half strike gave the Bhoys victory at Aberdeen.

Last season's player of the year, Celtic left-back Emilio Izaguirre, was stretchered off after 15 minutes at Pittodrie with a suspected broken ankle.

On-loan Manchester City goalkeeper David Gonzalez kept Celtic at bay for much of the game before Stokes broke the deadlock on 74 minutes.

The 23-year-old exchanged passes with Scotland international Kris Commons in the penalty area before firing home from 14 yards to maintain his side's 100% start to the season.

Celtic host Dundee United on Saturday in their next SPL fixture.
