Aberdeen striker Sam Cosgrove believes he could have been “well clear” of Rangers star Alfredo Morelos in the race to be the Scottish Premiership’s top goalscorer – and admits that he’s happy making a “nuisance” of himself in his bid to get goals.
Cosgrove trails the Ibrox star by a single goal and could overturn that this afternoon when the Dons face Hibs in their final league game of the season.
After a prolific spell earlier in season, Cosgrove hasn’t been as hot in front of goal recently but insists that he’s happy with his overall performances for the Pittodrie side.
“I could have been well clear by now, but I’m just trying to score as many as I can and I’m happy with my overall contribution,” Cosgrove said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“I’ve accepted from day one in football that you have to do the dirty work first.
“I don’t mind being the lone target man, being a nuisance and aggressive if we are winning.”
The Dons face a huge clash with Hibs today as they aim to secure a Europa League spot for next season.
Depending on the result in the Kilmarnock v Rangers clash, all Aberdeen can do is win and hope that it’s enough.
If Cosgrove can fire the goals needed to jump Morelos in the goalscoring charts then it might just do the trick for the Dons.
