Aberdeen v The Rangers League Cup Semi Final 2018

Lewis Ferguson Header Seals Cup Semi-Final Win For Dons

It was far from a solid performance from Aberdeen, but a late Lewis Ferguson header was all that separated the Dons from The Rangers to secure a Scottish League Cup Final date against Celtic in December.

Ferguson, rose to meet Niall McGinn’s corner with 11 minutes left on the clock.

We came under pressure for long spells  of the game, but looked equally as dangerous to our opposition when going forward.

Midway through the first half, Andy Considine took a head blow from Lassana Coulibaly which soured the affair, with medics taking six or seven minutes to treat the player before he was stretchered off to a round of applause from the support.

Ferguson headed the winner in the 79th minutes from a Niall McGinn corner, sending the fans into raptures.

And for all the chances The Rangers had on goal, only one shot was on target.

The Dons have now secured our third League Cup Final under Derek McInnes since he joined Aberdeen.
