Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes admits it doesn’t look good for Ross McCrorie after the Rangers loanee was one of three Dons stars to go off injured against Ross County.

The injuries to Jonny Hayes, Ash Taylor and the Rangers loanee capped off a horrendous day for the Dons in which they lost to bottom of the league County 4-1. An Oli Shaw double, Jermain Hylton and Charlie Lakin settled things in Dingwall.

It moved John Hughes’ side out the relegation zone and McInnes’ men slipped to fourth with this bitter defeat. But fears remain for Hayes and McCrorie in particular, the latter leaving Global Energy Arena in crutches.

McInnes said: “As well as the result, we lost three players to injury as well. We’ve got Ross leaving the ground on crutches as well as Ash and Jonny coming off, so it doesn’t look good.

“Ross has got an issue with his ankle, the bottom of his leg. He couldn’t move the last ten minutes but we’d used all the subs so he had to carry on. That had a bearing on the third goal, he couldn’t get off the ground to jump for the ball at the corner to challenge with Draper.

“Hopefully things turn out to be better than it looks, but we do fear the worst. Jonny rolled his ankle on the surface, he’s left on crutches too so we’ll have to see how that settles and Ash had a back spasm early on.”
