Our end of season review continues with a look at how Aberdeen winger Gary Mackay-Steven fared in 2018-19.
It has been a season to forget overall for Aberdeen’s Gary Mackay-Steven. It promised much but ultimately was marred by two serious injuries.
He suffered a concussion in the Betfred Cup Final defeat to Celtic which kept him out of action for over a month.
Out for two months
That was then followed a by a calf injury which took two months to recover from. Those injuries put a stop to what could have been a promising season for the player.
As a result, he was limited to 30 appearances for the season, scoring seven goals. Interestingly, he only scored one goal between his two injuries.
As for next season, it is not yet known where the player’s future lies. He is out of contract with Aberdeen.
‘Undecided’ over his future
That could mean that he will return to Pittodrie. Derek McInnes would no doubt be delighted to have the player back at the club.
He will have to steer clear of the injuries which blighted his last season though. They ruined what had the potential to be an excellent season for the winger.
