He has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in Scottish football but Joe Lewis wants something tangible to show from his time at Aberdeen.
The Englishman has been an integral member of Derek McInnes’s side since arriving at Pittodrie in the summer of 2016 but the medals he possesses are of the runner-up variety.
That has added to his desire to collect his first winners’ medal one tomorrow.
He said: “My medals are in a box at home. You don’t tend to put your second prize ones up, but I have got a space for a winners’ medal and hopefully that happens on Sunday.
“I have huge hunger to win a trophy for this club. A lot of great teams have played for Aberdeen, you walk down the corridor in the stadium and you see the pictures of cup wins.
“I want to be part of that and go down in history as a player who helped Aberdeen win trophies.”
If Aberdeen win the League Cup tomorrow they will have done so in the hardest manner possible as an all-conquering and dominant Celtic side stand between the Dons and their second trophy of the McInnes era.
Brendan Rodgers’s side have won all six trophies since the Northern Irishman arrived in Scotland, at the same time as Lewis, and are heavy favourites to make it seven-in-a-row tomorrow but Lewis insists his underdog team-mates are confident of creating an upset.
He points to the difficult path to the final for his side after overcoming Rangers in the semi-final and Hibernian at Easter Road in the quarter-final as two reasons why the Dons are heading to Glasgow in confident mood.
Lewis said: “We have had to do it the hard way to get to the final and we have to take confidence from that.
“They maybe haven’t been the prettiest of games at times, but it is about winning in cup games and we have done that. If we do that on Sunday then we will have won the cup.
“You want to play free-flowing football, but sometimes that can’t be the case and if we win on Sunday, I don’t think anyone would bother how it came about.
“We have done well at home this season in the games when we have been favourites. We were underdogs against Hibs and Rangers and got the result we wanted.
“Any team playing Celtic in our league you know they are favourites. We know though we are more than capable of winning this game and we are going into it in a positive mood.
“The starting line-up will step over that white line confidence they can do the job.”
Lewis has performed admirably already in the competition, helping his side to a penalty shoot-out win in the quarter-final and he has been practicing just in case spot kicks are required once more to determine the winner tomorrow.
He said: “We practiced penalties this week but you have to be decisive as a goalkeeper. Much like taking the penalty you have to pick the way you are going and stick to it. You just hope your gut instinct is right.
“I saved one at Hibernian and we got through, so that gives myself, and the boys who scored them confidence. I don’t think a penalty shootout is a lottery because you need the bottle to stand up and take them. It is about who holds their nerve.
“If the keeper guesses the way you are going and saves it, then you can say you are unlucky. I haven’t been involved in too many and Easter Road is the only one I have faced in senior football.
“I had a few when I was younger, but I have a decent penalty record in my career which is nice.”
