Aberdeen defender Andrew Considine has been ruled out with a knee injury until after Christmas. The defender suffered ligament damage during their Europa Conference League playoff against Qarabag last week. The defender underwent surgery on Wednesday. Aberdeen will be looking to overcome a one-goal deficit at home but will be short of experience at the back after the loss of Considine. They will look to rely on experienced midfielder Scott brown midweek.
“Andy went to see a specialist yesterday, he has today had his cruciate repaired so he is going to be out beyond Christmas.” Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass said after defender Andrew Considine was ruled out until after Christmas. “It is something that he will be able to get back from, he is a great professional, and we believe he will come back strong and ready to go not too long after Christmas hopefully.”
The first concern is for Andy himself. He is in good spirits but he is obviously going to be disappointed because he has been brilliant since we came in.” he added. “He is an unbelievable example to young players at the club, he is a great professional, one of the best that I have ever encountered. So we are hugely disappointed for him, but we are here to support him in his rehab and as soon as he is back in the building everyone is here to help him get back on track.”
