Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack is unfazed by the prospect of being booed on his Pittodrie return tomorrow.
The 25-year-old, who moved from the Dons to the Ibrox club in the summer, is expected to start at right back for Scotland against the Netherlands.
Jack angered many Aberdeen fans by moving to the club’s rivals but says he isn’t worried about the reception he’ll get on his first game back at Pittodrie.
He said: “No, not at all.
“I’d been with Aberdeen since I was eight-years-old and played 250 games for them.
“It’s a great club and all my family and friends are still based up there so I’m looking forward to having them at the game.
“Under Pedro Caixinha we didn’t have many days off as we trained quite a lot. I went up a couple of times to see family and friends and there were no issues. It was fine.
“It’s not about me and it’s not about Rangers and Aberdeen. It’s about Scotland and about the team.
“I am just focusing on giving it my best shot if I get called upon to play.”
Jack, meanwhile, said he would have no issue with Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes replacing the sacked Caixinha at Ibrox.
The midfielder said: “I would have no issue with him at all.
“I don’t pay too much attention to that. You just have to wait and see who comes in.
“Whoever it will be, will be. I look forward to it when it happens.
“From what I’m hearing there are a lot of strong candidates. I try not to worry about that side of it.”
When Jack was linked with a move to Rangers last season, McInnes gave a public assurance to the Aberdeen support that the club’s captain would not be moving to Ibrox.
But when Jack confirmed he would be leaving Pittodrie at the end of the season, he was stripped of the captain’s armband a week before the Scottish Cup final defeat by Celtic.
He said: “When everything did break it was the week of the Scottish Cup final.
“You could say it was the biggest game of both our careers.
“It wasn’t about me or us. It was about Aberdeen trying to do well in the final.
“After that we shook hands, wished each other all the best and moved on.”
