Ryan Christie is chasing his own Scottish Cup double as he targets a Hampden win in May with Aberdeen.
The on-loan Celtic midfielder won the cup in 2015 with Caley Thistle and is desperate to get his hands on the famous trophy once more.
Christie, who came off the bench to score his first goal for the Dons in last Saturday’s 2-0 win against Partick Thistle, would love nothing more than to soak up cup glory with the Dons at the end of the season.
Ross County stand between the Dons and a place in the last eight of the competition this weekend but Christie is in confident mood ahead of Saturday’s trip to Dingwall.
He said: “I’m looking forward to going back to the Highlands. I will get a decent reception there.
“I would love to go on a cup run with Aberdeen. That’s something I spoke to the manager about when I came here.
“It’s a big reason I came here. They want to do well in the cup and it would be great to help the boys reach a final.”
Christie, 21, was part of the Caley Thistle side which beat Falkirk to win the cup for the first time in their history two years ago and the magnitude of the achievement did not hit home at the time.
He said: “It’s sunk in more than it did at the time. It was an incredible achievement and the way we did it back then was a credit to Inverness.
“Graeme Shinnie experienced it, too, and it would be a different tale if we were to do it with Aberdeen.
“But it’s always hard. You can never guess who is going to win the Scottish Cup. It’s Inverness v Falkirk one year and Hibs v Rangers.
“Not a lot of people would have foreseen Hibs from the Championship winning the Scottish Cup last year. It’s a hard cup to get your hands on. But that would make it even better if we manage it.”
Christie knows an Aberdeen cup win would prevent a Celtic treble but reckons his manager Brendan Rodgers would appreciate his desire to be successful at Pittodrie.
He said: “I’m guessing the manager at Celtic wouldn’t want that and obviously I won’t be able to play against Celtic if it comes to that. But I want to lift one.”
