Aberdeen defender Mikey Devlin will miss the next two games but could be sidelined for even longer.
Devlin will sit out today’s clash against St Johnstone and Tuesday’s match with Livingston.
Dons boss Derek McInnes confirmed the centre-back may also miss next Saturday’s trip to St Mirren.
Devlin has been sidelined since sustaining a foot ligament injury whilst on international duty with Scotland and has missed the last three games.
McInnes said: “Although his injury is still healing we are a bit reluctant to try and push him on until maybe later on next week.
“Mikey will miss the next two games and at this moment is probably a doubt for St Mirren. Hopefully the injury settles and we get him back.”
Winger Gary Mackay-Steven is also out of today’s clash having suffered concussion in the Betfred Cup final.
Mackay-Steven was hospitalized in Glasgow having been knocked unconscious in an accidental collision of heads with Dedryck Boyata.
He was released on the night of the final. Mackay-Steven is being monitored by the Dons’ medical team and could be in contention to face Livi on Tuesday.
GMS took to social media to thank medical staff who cared for him.
He said: “So Sunday never turned out the way I hoped but I feel very fortunate writing this.
“Firstly, a massive thank you to the Aberdeen FC medical team, Adam, Tony, Stuart and Gary, who assisted me on the pitch rapidly and expertly.
“Thank you to the first responders at Hampden Park and every single paramedic, doctor and nurse that seen me at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
“Lastly, I would like to thank every single person that has taken the time to send lovely messages and well wishes.”
