Eros Grezda had a couple of chances to nab a late winner last night

The striker could have scored a late equaliser to take the Betfred Cup tie to extra-time, but was booked for diving.

"Based on past attendance figures for Aberdeen versus Celtic in a final at Hampden of 18,000 (2016 League Cup final) and 20,000 (2017 Scottish Cup final), the AFC board took the decision to underwrite and thereby guarantee 16,400 (over 80 per cent) seats, ensuring our most loyal supporters get access to the best seats available", the statement continued.

"I'll answer that, it's a warning", the former England skipper interrupted.

"It's Aberdeen's day, we wish them well".


"On watching his 79th-minute right-footed corner finding Ferguson's head and the chaotic, jubilant scenes among the players and Red Army afterwards, McGinn said: "(I was) obviously overjoyed.

Some think we did enough to win against Aberdeen whilst others felt as though we needed to do more and I think we can all agree that the game was there for the taking if we had been sharper. "At least we're putting ourselves in a position to be criticised".

For Aberdeen, it's a chance for retribution for Celtic's invincible season.

He said: "We were up against the best Celtic team of a generation that year, they were outstanding".


The Dons boss saw his side lose both domestic finals to Celtic the season before last but believes they are now capable of stopping the Hoops in the December 2 showpiece.

The 21-year-old was one of the first incomings to the Gers under Steven Gerrard, and while he got off to a sticky start in Scotland, he has begun to flourish and is now showing everyone why the former Liverpool legend was so keen to get him in the first place.

"But I think our lads are lucky because this game comes around pretty quickly".
