Aberdeen star Lewis Ferguson isn’t looking ahead to where the Dons could finish in the Premiership table just yet.

A poor season for Celtic means that Derek McInnes’ side is in striking distance of overtaking the Scottish champions. A win over Livingston tonight would see Aberdeen move to within two points of second placed Celtic. Although they will have played two games more.

Not thinking that far ahead

Perhaps some at Aberdeen are thinking that second place is a real possibility this season. If Ferguson is one of those individuals, he isn’t admitting it in public.

“We are not thinking about where we could finish in the league. And it is not something we have spoken about” he said.

“We are just focusing fully on ourselves and concentrating on winning as many points as possible, we just focus on one game at a time” he went on.


Ferguson also addressed the current situation in Scottish football which has seen League One and Two postponed until the end of January.

Feels bad for clubs who aren’t playing

He feels sorry for those players who are currently unable to play.

“I feel sorry for the clubs who are having to stop playing. It is sad to see” Ferguson said. The player also admitted that top-flight footballers were lucky to be in the position that they can play at the moment.

“I said a few weeks ago that we are very privileged to be able to continue to play football. There are a lot of people who have lost their jobs or are unable to work. We are able to come in and do our jobs. We are very lucky” he admitted.
