It almost appeared Max Lowe’s Aberdeen teammates were left with nothing to show for their efforts on Sunday as Celtic lifted the Betfred Cup in the Hampden final.
However, reprieve came the way of the Dons on Wednesday night as they recorded a famous 1-0 victory over Rangers at Ibrox.
The on-loan-full-back who put up an impressive display against Rangers is pleased with the team’s progress and believes they are now focused on their weekend fixture against St. Johnstone.
Lowe told Evening times:
“After being here a couple of weeks, I felt like I’d improved my game. The gaffer took me to one side and told me the things I needed to improve defensively – I still need to improve in the air.”
“He will take me aside in training and do one-v-one stuff. Each game, I’m picking up and learning things as I go on.”
“Rangers and Celtic are great teams and I’m happy we’ve been able to keep them quiet. Hopefully, I can do that for as long as I stay.”
“With the games in hand, we’re really confident. The final we lost, but everyone said we played really well.”
“Hopefully we can kick on and make a run of it. We’ve had a tough week of away games so hopefully, this can serve us well.”
“It could have been a terrible week if we lost the final and had lost on Wednesday.”
“It would have been hard to kick on again. To get the win is massive for us and a massive confidence boost.”
“It could be a season-changer; we can deal with anyone in this league. We showed that on Sunday, never mind on Wednesday, and I think teams in this league will know what kind of team we are.”
