Lewis loves warm, light glory nights


closer to ambition.

Lewis said: “It is big for the football club. However we are not going to get ahead of ourselves. We are one goal ahead and need to make sure we perform well.

“Of course the goal is to get to the groups and from there you reassess and think what we can do from there. We are looking to put in a strong performanc­e but will not get too carried away.

“We have a one-goal advantage and have seen that they can hurt us if given the time and space to do that. They have some realising that good players so we have to make sure we are fully focused.”

Lewis, who was made Aberdeen skipper after the departure of Graeme Shinnie, will share the role this season following the arrival of Scott Brown.

Goalkeeper Lewis was named club captain by manager Stephen Glass, with Brown being given the title of team captain.

“We’ve got a really good dynamic,” said Lewis. “We’ve brought in a few leaders and certainly a physical presence on the pitch, but also vocal and Brown is both of them. He’s fantastic, he’s a great leader on and off the pitch. He’s an absolute joy to have at the football club and we’re really enjoying having him.

“Hopefully we continue that and spread that and everybody can learn from him and the career he’s had.

“We’ve also brought in Dec, JET, Christian (Ramirez), all lads with good experience and with old heads.

“The likes of Andy (Considine) and myself are experience­d boys as well. We’ve got plenty of experience and leadership this season which is very pleasing.”
