Scott McKenna has taken a fresh dig at Mikael Lustig over his Betfred Cup Final celebrations.

In the closing minutes of the December match Lewis Ferguson lost his cool as the clock ticked down to the final whistle.

A first cup final defeat is never easy to take with the Dons midfielder, who’s dad and uncle both started their careers at Ibrox, struggling to cope with the build up to another Celtic trophy celebration.

Speaking to The Sun McKenna recalled: “What happened at the League Cup Final was disappointing. Lustig was right in Fergie’s face, a 19-year-old boy.

Lustig’s an experienced player, there was no need to do it. Celtic had won the cup, they had beaten us, and to try and rub it into someone that young was not right.”

Like Scott Brown’s actions ‘not in the best interests of association football’ there is no video or photographic evidence of Lustig in Ferguson’s face.

Whatever age you are on a football park makes no difference to the rules, had Ferguson a little more experience or more seasoned team-mates he would have been able to hand his disappointment better.

Last season McKenna captained Aberdeen to a 3-0 defeat in the Scottish Cup semi-final to Motherwell, Celtic went on to beat the Fir Park side 2-0 in the final to complete the double treble.
