Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has hailed Florian Kamberi for the way he has hit the ground running at the Dons.

The striker had not played for over a month before joining the Pittodrie side on transfer deadline day. However, since joining Aberdeen, he has started three games and impressed in them all.

The Dons boss is very impressed that the 25-year-old has managed to play so many games in a relatively short period.

“An element of risk”

“Flo playing 90 minutes again is an incredible achievement. He had not played a lot of games of late, and we knew with three games in a week coming up there was an element of risk” he said (Evening Express).

McInnes feels that the player can get even better once he has done more training with the club.

“He hasn’t really done any training, he has just been resting down between games.

“Only get better”

“Hopefully this week we can get him a few more training days, a few more rest days, and he will only get better and better” McInnes stated.

Kamberi’s best performance for the Dons so far was probably in the 1-0 defeat to Celtic just over a week ago. Despite being on the losing side, Kamberi caused the Celtic defence all sorts of problems. He was also unlucky to see a shot come off the back of the post.

If he can repeat that performance when the teams meet again at Celtic Park this weekend, then Aberdeen could pull off what would be a vital win in the battle for third place in the Premiership.
