We continue our end of season review of some of the most notable players in Scottish football with a review of Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis’ season.
It has been business as usual for Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis. He has remained one of the most consistent performers in Scottish football.
This is despite the fact that Aberdeen have failed to hit the heights they reached in previous seasons. They finished in fourth place in the league table. A decline from the runners-up position they had achieved the previous season.
Key man in run to cup final
That does not mean that Lewis did not impress. He was a key man for the Dons in their run to the Betfred Cup Final.
He even saved a penalty in the game, but ended up on the losing side as the Dons lost 1-0 to Celtic.
His statistics for the year show what a good season Lewis had. He kept 15 clean sheets in 50 games, conceding 56 goals.
Excellent clean sheet record
That is a record that he should be proud of.
The good news for Aberdeen fans is that he is set to be their goalkeeper for many years to come. He signed a five-year contract with the Pittodrie club, that keeps him at Aberdeen until 2024.
It could be argued that Lewis is the best goalkeeper in Scottish football. With the new contract, Lewis has a chance to show everyone just how good a player he is.
