ABERDEEN star Lewis Ferguson managed to get tickets to the Europa League final thanks to one of his former teammates.
Midfielder Ferguson was spotted in the stands at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium in Seville alongside fellow Dons ace Ross McCrorie, whose brother Robby was on the bench for Rangers.
And dad Derek has revealed it was former Aberdeen winger Scott Wright, who was in Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s starting XI against Frankfurt, who procured his old pal tickets for the showpiece match.
Ferguson Sr shared his experience from the trip to Seville and admitted he got rather emotional ahead of the big match.
He told the Open Goal podcast: “Ross came in from Ibiza and Lewis came in with him.
“I think it was Scotty Wright who sorted Lewis out with tickets.
“Scott is Lewis’ pal anyway. He was excellent.
“We all met up on the day and I got a wee bit emotional, as you do when you get older. I was greeting my eyes out!
“Because, I just love my boys. My nephews Kyle and Connor were there as well.”
Ferguson didn’t actually get a ticket for the game himself but loved every minute of his stay in Seville.
He also at one point was posted missing when an overweight man FELL on top of him.
He said: “It was great, honestly. The build-up to the game was amazing.
“On the day, it was sensational. The atmosphere was second to none.
“I hold my hands up, I never made the game. We were promised a ticket but it fell through in the end and probably just as well for me. I don’t think I was in any fit state to attend a football match.
“The atmosphere before it was electric.
“Do you know something, the boys I was with lost me. I was lost in action.
“Want to know where I was? Under a 25 stone man, a big guy had fell right on top of me when I was on the stool!
“The amount of old friends that I met up with was brilliant, and I made some new friends as well.
“It was magic.”
