Robson Urges Aberdeen to take League Cup chance

Barry Robson urged his Aberdeen players not to be left with the same sort of cup regrets he has been carrying for the best part of a decade.

Robson was in the Dons side which ended a 19-year trophy drought in March 2014 when they won the League Cup by beating Inverness in a penalty shoot-out at Celtic Park following a goalless draw

Around 43,000 Red Army fans enjoyed the club's first major trophy win since 1995 but the former Celtic and Scotland midfielder believes Aberdeen should have won the cup double that season and remains irked that they lost 2-1 to St Johnstone in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup at Ibrox the following month.

Ahead of the Viaplay Cup semi-final against Hibernian at Hampden Park on Saturday, Robson, who believes his side are "in a good place" following a 4-2 Scottish Premiership win over Motherwell at Fir Park on Wednesday night, looked back at his solitary medal with the Granite City club and said: "The biggest frustration I always had - I should have won the other cup.

"It is terrible to think like that. When you win a cup, the first time in 20 years for Aberdeen, it is terrible to think like that.
