It is fair to say that Aberdeen aren’t having much luck with injuries this season. Scott McKenna and Ash Taylor have both been out of action for lengthy periods of time.
Scott Wright recently suffered a knee injury which will keep him out of action for most of the rest of the season.
Summer signing out for around three months
Now the Dons boss has confirmed more bad injury news on Aberdeen’s Twitter account. The Dons boss confirmed that Funso Ojo will be out of action for around three months, whilst Craig Bryson will miss a month of games for Aberdeen.
💬 Derek – Funso will be out for the best part of three months and Craig Bryson will miss around four weeks.

There are no good times to suffer injuries, but this looks to be a particularly bad time for the Dons. The duo will miss some big games in the upcoming weeks, such as the Betfred Cup quarter-final against Hearts and a trip to Ibrox to play Rangers.
Injuries could have a knock-on effect on season
The injuries could really have a knock-on effect on Aberdeen’s season. By the time the injuries clear up, the Dons could be out of the Betfred Cup and struggling in the league.
The injury to Bryson will be a real blow, as he looked to be a very good signing, but so far injuries have prevented him from establishing himself in the team.
It will take all of Derek McInnes’ managerial qualities to guide Aberdeen through this spell. If Aberdeen are in a strong position once their injuries have cleared up, the credit has to go to McInnes.
It promises to be an intriguing few months for Aberdeen. The entire Dons squad will need to stand-up and be counted as the injury crisis continues.
