A number of Glasgow Rangers fans were pleased to hear that Aberdeen will be without Sam Cosgrove for Saturday’s clash between the two teams due to injury.
As per The Scottish Sun, the 23-year-old faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to a knee injury, sustained in a friendly against Hibernian last week, which is projected to rule him out until mid-November at the earliest.

The striker enjoyed a tremendous 2019/20 season for the Dons, netting 23 goals in all competitions for the Pittodrie outfit, and he had been the subject of transfer speculation linking him with a £2.7m switch to French side Guingamp, only for him to turn down the move.
Cosgrove has scored three times in nine previous appearances against the ‘Gers and was sent off against Steven Gerrard’s side in a 1-0 win at Ibrox two seasons ago. [via TransferMarkt]
His absence is sure to be a severe blow to Derek McInnes’ team but it was music to the ears of these supporters of the Ibrox club on Twitter, with one fan describing it as “excellent”:
