Aberdeen’s Greg Stewart has claimed that the Dons won’t fear heading to Ibrox tomorrow in the Scottish Cup – and the Dons ace wants his team-mates to show a “strong mentality” against Steven Gerrard’s side.
The two sides meet in a quarter-final replay tomorrow night with both sides acutely aware it is their only shot at silverware this season.

Stewart admits he wants to win trophies with the Dons and admits it is a massive game for both sides at Ibrox.
“We won’t be fearful of Tuesday’s game. It always is nervy when you go to Ibrox if it’s 1-1 or it’s a draw and they’re trying to press and the fans are obviously looking for that goal,”
Stewart said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“It’s something when you play at Ibrox and Rangers don’t start well then the fans start asking questions. When you come to Aberdeen you want to win cups. It’s part of what happens up there.

“You go there to win trophies, so it’s just as big a game for both teams. You need to have a strong mentality coming to places Parkhead. I’ve felt like that at Aberdeen, especially the last few times we’ve come through to Glasgow.”
