DONS IN MONEY AS TIE GOES LIVE ON TV

 

08:50 - 08 February 2008

 

Aberdeen have received an additional financial windfall from the Scottish Cup as their quarter-final against Celtic will be shown live on TV.

 

Satellite broadcaster Sky has chosen the Dons' game against Celtic as its tie of the round and will show the game on Sunday, March 9. The game will kick-off at 12.45pm. The switch for television purposes means both clubs receive £82,500 from the television company.

 

News of the additional money will soften the blow of Barry Nicholson's absence when the SPL champions visit Pittodrie next month as the midfielder will be suspended.

 

Nicholson was booked in the fourth-round tie at Falkirk and received a second yellow card in Saturday's 1-0 win against Hamilton to rule himself out of manager Jimmy Calderwood's plans for the visit of Gordon Strachan's side. There was some good news for the Dons on the suspension front, however, as forward Lee Miller will be available for Sunday's SPL match against the champions at Pittodrie.

 

Miller was sent off in Tuesday's League Cup defeat by Dundee United but he will serve his suspension in his first game of the tournament next season.

JC's going to stuff it up his jumper so that folk can moan he's put on more weight.

 

Another £83k to disappear into the kitty....

 

Will Nicolson be offered any more to stay?

 

Miller perhaps?

 

Or will we get rid of both and snatch another couple rejects from our opposition teams light years ahead of us?

 

Sorted.

Double sorted.

At least he probably won't be with us to serve that! :thumbsup:

Just a thought, but could his poor form be due to the fact he hasn't got his future sorted? I mean, it seemed like running up to christmas he was in form, then throughout january he's be pish. Not exactly the best way to put yourself in the shop window is it. Just a thought mind.

In the short term yes. He was told during January he wouldn't be allowed to leave until the summer.
