Gary Mackay-Steven has returned to social media for the first time since being knocked out cold at the Betfred Cup Final.

The Aberdeen winger suffered a clash of heads with Dedryck Boyata during the first half of the match with the game held up for six minutes as he received treatment.

There were real fears for his health before he regained consciousness before being transferred to hospital where he was detained overnight.

Aberdeen’s medical team will now monitor his fitness before deciding when he can return to fitness then consider playing again.

Mackay-Steven has been Aberdeen’s most effective player this season, forcing his way into the Scotland side.

With his contract expiring at the end of this season it seems likely that he will quit Pittodrie to try his luck in England where he had a spell with Liverpool as a teenager before returning to Scotland.
