Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has revealed a possible triple injury boost ahead of Aberdeen’s clash against Rangers on Wednesday.
He disclosed that Michael Devlin is back in the squad whilst Joe Lewis and Sam Cosgrove may return.
On the downside for the Dons, defender Scott McKenna is still out.
McInnes made the revelation on Aberdeen’s official Twitter account.
💬 Derek – Sometimes it’s too easy to blame the referee. Sam trained today and Joe feels ready while Michael Devlin is added to the squad and McLennan and McKenna are still out.

Fans will be pleased that Devlin is back, as he has been out of action since November.
Sam Cosgrove has been in very good form recently, if he is back that will be a huge boost for the Dons.
The match against Rangers is vital when it comes to Aberdeen’s title ambitions.
They currently sit eight points behind league leaders Celtic.
In the battle for second place, they sit two points behind Rangers.
The Dons are unbeaten against Rangers this season in three matches between the teams.
The teams drew 1-1 at Pittodrie on the opening day of the season.
A win for the Dons would seem them keep their title hopes alive, and they would leapfrog Rangers into second place in the league table.
A defeat would leave them battling Kilmarnock and Hearts for a third placed finish.
