Sam Cosgrove was reportedly watched by Championship side Middlesbrough as Aberdeen played out an exciting Pittodrie draw (Daily Record).

The in-form striker was in action for 90 minutes against Rangers as his side battled back from two goals down to take a 2-2 draw.

It was a terrible start to the game for Aberdeen, with freedom of the park allowing Rangers to drive into a 2-0 lead in cruise control. A spirited Aberdeen rally though got the Dons back into the game and on level pegging.

Cosgrove didn’t get on the scoresheet but he did set up the equaliser. He knocked down a corner to Andy Considine, who made no mistake with the finish.


Cosgrove should have scored

Boro assistant Robbie Keane was reportedly in attendance to cast the eye over Cosgrove. They are currently in 20th spot in the Championship, one point clear of safety, and need firepower to get them heading up the table.

Whilst he didn’t score, Cosgrove was certainly busy. His approach was extremely aggressive in the first half, launching himself into heavy challenges and competing with the Rangers backline.

He got an assist for his efforts as the Dons earned a decent point. He already has 18 goals to his name this term and this latest report comes days after he was linked to fellow Championship side Stoke (Scottish Sun).

Aberdeen are said to want £4 million for the striker. On current form, it’s no surprise to see reported interest ramp up.
