Video: Aberdeen’s Joe Lewis Pulls Off Superb Penalty Save Against Celtic’s Scott Sinclair

Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Lewis pulled off a stunning save in the Betfred Cup Final at Hampden this afternoon by stopping a penalty from Scott Sinclair.

What do you think of the save, and just how good a goalie is Lewis?
