Heading into the international break with Wales, Aberdeen winger Ryan Hedges is looking forward to learning from the Premier League stars within Ryan Giggs’ side.
Hedges scored his second league goal for the Dons in a 3-0 win over Ross County. Strikes from Sam Cosgrove and Niall McGinn, along with Hedges’ finish, secured a comfortable victory for Derek McInnes’ side.
The Welsh winger is now looking forward to the break and learning from some of the best.
He told the club’s website : ” I am sure that when I go away with the Wales squad I can speak to Ryan Giggs about how things are going and how I am progressing up here and hopefully it can be enough to get into the team.
“You can learn from one of the best players in the world (Gareth Bale) and the squad that Wales have got you can always take things from every player. They all have quality to get them to where they are.
“They have got the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey who has unfortunately dropped out, Dan James, Harry Wilson, and other players playing in the Premiership and I will learn off players like that.”
Premier League teammates will help Aberdeen winger Hedges
With the likes of Bale, Wilson and James in the squad, there is plenty of talent in the winger department for Giggs to choose from.
Whilst that may limit his game time, it’ll be a brilliant experience for Hedges. Seeing how some of the best conduct themselves in training and on the pitch will be beneficial for him.
Not only that, but his manager is one of the best wingers of his generation. Gaining useful pointers from someone with legendary status like Giggs should give Hedges some tips on how to improve his game.
The Dons winger will look to add a fourth Wales cap to his name over the next couple of weeks. He’ll also be looking to build on his impressive league form, having scored twice with one assist in three Premiership games so far.
His Wales call-up is a big reward and Hedges will look to repay Giggs’ faith in him if he gets out on the park.
