Aberdeen midfielder Ryan Hedges is out of the Europa Conference League game with Qarabag after not travelling with the squad to Azerbaijan. Hedges limped off in the Premier Sports Cup defeat to Raith Rovers on Sunday with a hamstring problem and manager Stephen Glass had doubts over his availability. There is some good news though for the Dons with Jonny Hayes among the squad which flew out of Aberdeen airport this morning. ✈️ Checking into @ABZ_Airport. 🇦🇿 Next stop, Baku. pic.twitter.com/pCui8cCAAB — Aberdeen FC (@AberdeenFC) August 17, 2021 Aberdeen face Qarabag in Baku on Thursday night, with the return leg at Pittodrie a week later.
