Aberdeen midfielder Ryan Jack has capped an impressive Scottish Cup final appearance with a nutmeg on Celtic defender Mikael Lustig.

This will of course be Jack’s final appearance for the Dons, with Derek McInnes confirming the Rangers target won’t renew his contract at the end of the season.

In fact, much of the build-up to today’s game has centred around Jack, who was stripped of the captaincy for the final, after it emerged that Rangers had made contact with the 25 year-old’s representatives.

And while Jack was subjected to a tonne of abuse from the Aberdeen fans during last weekend’s victory against Partick Thistle, he’s put a strong shift in this afternoon, culminating with this piece of skill:

 

While both Rangers and Jack have retaining their silence over reports Pedro Caixinha is keen to recruit the player, a nutmeg on a defender who plays club’s biggest rivals won’t do his stock any harm with the Ibrox faithful.
