Aberdeen handed boost for Celtic Scottish Cup Semi Final

Aberdeen hope to have Slobodan Rubezic back for their Scottish Cup Semi Final against Celtic. The Scottish Champions will look to retain their trophy but first must beat the manager-less Pittodrie side, who are yet to appoint a permanent boss since Neil Warnock left in early March.

According to Record Sport, the Dons will look to welcome back the Montenegro Internationalist central defender, who has been injured for the last two months with a knee injury.

First Team coach and interim manager Peter Leven, who led his side to an unlikely draw against Celtic in February, said that they are hoping to have him to face Brendan Rodgers’ side.

“Rubi is about a week away from full training, full integration. He is in and out a little bit now.

“The semi-final is the target for Rubi. I think Dundee might be a little bit too close. He has trained well and the physios and staff have worked really hard with him.

“Rubi is a good professional as he does extra in the gym and things like that. He is looking really, really good.

“Rubi is dying to play in the semi-final. His attitude has been brilliant. He has been in the gym constantly and he is in a good place.”

Rubezic has made 29 appearances in all competitions for the Dons since arriving from Serbian side Novi Pazar last summer. However, in the meeting between the sides at Celtic Park, the player inexplicably avoided a red card for a dangerous tackle that left Kyogo concussed.
