Reynolds Reckons Ryan's Running Out Of Lives

Reynolds scored a wonder goal to make it 4-0 on Saturday - but he knows that his goal was a one-off compared to Ryan Fraser's consistency this term.

The 18-year-old winger came in for more rough treatment as Aberdeen eased to a 4-1 victory against St Mirren, with one crunching challenge in particular provoking the ire of the Dons fans.

Fraser limped off following a brutal assault by St Mirren’s Marc McAusland, which went unpunished by referee Finnie.

But on-loan Reynolds believes the majority of tackles are fair - it's just that Fraser is too good for the defenders in the SPL.

He said: "I don’t think it’s deliberate and guys are just going in looking to win the ball. Ryan’s that quick, though, that he’s getting caught late and it’s happening every week.

"One of these days he’s not going to be so lucky and get his foot off the ground. He could end up with a broken leg.

"It’s one of the benefits of youth that he’s never been hurt and probably feels immortal, but one of these days he’s not going to be so lucky and end up with a sore one.

"I don’t know what can be done to protect him. The referees are playing to the law and the guys going into the tackles are honest enough."
