Aberdeen star and former Celtic target Scott McKenna has reopened a League Cup Final wound ahead of this Sunday’s showdown with Celtic.
Brendan Rodgers once tried to sign McKenna for Celtic while the Irishman was at the club, however, Aberdeen knocked back Celtic’s advances at the time.
The defender is now looking for revenge after Celtic beat Aberdeen 1-0 at Hampden to lift the league cup trophy but the player goes one further and criticises Mikael Lustig for his actions after the match.
Lustig and Brown celebrated next to Lewis Ferguson and it caused an uproar at the time from some of the Dons players and the manager Derek McInnes. The Dons citing the Lustig was picking on a ‘young player’ and again McKenna goes back to Lewis being a youngster when the big striker was clearly man enough to give verbals during the game.
“What happened at the League Cup Final was disappointing. Lustig was right in Fergie’s face, a 19-year-old boy.” McKenna Told The Sun.
“Lustig’s an experienced player, there was no need to do it. Celtic had won the cup, they had beaten us, and to try and rub it into someone that young was not right.”
We very much doubt Lustig singled the player out for no reason and it’s more than likely Lewis was indulging in some wind-up tactics himself before the incident.
