Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson is dreaming of being the Hampden hero once again this Sunday.
The 19-year-old endeared himself to the Red Army by heading home a late winning goal in the Betfred Cup semi-final 1-0 victory against Rangers at the national stadium last month.
Ferguson, pictured, would love for history to repeat itself when the Dons take on Celtic with the first major domestic trophy of the season up for grabs this Sunday.
The midfielder, who joined the club from Hamilton Accies in the summer, said: “That was a special moment for me and the team and hopefully we can prepare well and go into the cup final in the same way as we did against Rangers.
“Defensively, we were excellent in that match but I don’t know yet if Mikey Devlin’s injury will clear up in time for the game.
“If not then Andy Considine will come in and he is just as good so I’m sure the defensive side of things will be good. We will just be looking for a spark up front whether it’s a ball through from Niall McGinn or a cross from Gary Mackay-Steven I’m just dreaming about scoring the winner.”
The Dons head into the match on the back of a sour note after suffering a 3-0 reverse at Motherwell on Saturday.
Derek McInnes’s men had won four on the bounce before the international break but a disjointed display at Fir Park did little to raise expectations ahead of this weekend’s final.
The Dons have a major injury doubt over central defender Devlin and Ferguson hopes his former captain at Hamilton can recover from a foot injury in time for the showdown with the Hoops.
The 25-year-old, who was sidelined for the whole of last season with a knee injury, missed out on his chance to make his Scotland debut in this month’s double-header against Albania and Israel after picking up the injury in training.
Dons manager Derek McInnes has said Devlin must be able to train on Friday if he is to have a chance of being included in the starting line-up for the final.
Ferguson said: “I’m gutted for him as he’s been troubled with injuries for the last few years. Mikey is a top professional who was my club captain at Hamilton last year and now he sits next to me in the changing room at Aberdeen.
“He is a good mate and someone that I have always felt comfortable talking to so it was really good that he was here when I arrived.
“Mikey is a good player and I am hoping that he can get fit for the final.”
