Scottish Cup final and European spot would be a success for Aberdeen - McInnes

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes believes making the final of the Scottish Cup and clinching a Europa League qualifying place would complete a successful season for the club.

The Dons, who sit second on the Scottish Premiership, take on St Johnstone in the semi-final of the cup on Sunday and McInnes is eyeing a victory so the Pittodrie outfit can be in with a chance of lifting some silverware this term.

"At the minute it has been a good season, but how it is really described will be determined over the next five, six, seven games, hopefully," he said.

"I think if we can get to another cup final and be 90 minutes away from lifting the trophy, if we can get among the European spots, especially where we've come from in recent seasons, it would be a very significant season and one that will live long in the memory.

"As much as there is still a lot to play, there is still a lot we can miss out on, and I don't think we'll be totally satisfied if the League Cup win is the only thing we're really pleased about.

"So with that in mind, we've got five important league games and a semi-final next up, so we'll do our upmost to finish the season strongly as possible."
