Aberdeen's Europa League campaign ends in embarrassing fashion

Joe Lewis won’t ever want to watch this moment again.

ABERDEEN’S EUROPA LEAGUE campaign came to an embarrassing end on Thursday night.

In the dying moments of the match, Graeme Shinnie’s backpass to Joe Lewis hit a divot in the ground and bobbled away into the net, as the goalkeeper tried and failed to clear his lines by wildly swinging at and missing the ball.

It completed a miserable night for Aberdeen, who were set to exit the competition on away goals anyway before this moment of late drama.

It was a bad night for Irish striker Adam Rooney, who missed a penalty that would have put his team ahead in the tie, while fellow Irishman Jonny Hayes missed the game due to a hamstring injury.
