Derby County left-back Max Lowe is understood to be ready to snub Glasgow giants Rangers to return to Aberdeen on loan for a third time next season according to reports by The Scottish Sun.
The 22-year-old South Normanton-born defender has enjoyed two successful loan spells with The Dons this season which have impressed manager Derek McInnes.
It has been suggested that Derby County manager Frank Lampard will loan the player out again next season regardless of the outcome of their Sky Bet Championship play-off final tie with Aston Villa in nine days’ time. Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has previously been linked with the player, however, Aberdeen chief McInnes believes that Lowe will snub The Gers in favour of a return to Pittodrie next term.
Lowe has come through the youth ranks at Derby County and has gone on to make 14 appearances in all competitions for the club. The player helped Sky Bet League One club Shrewsbury Town to the play-offs last season in a half-season loan spell in Shropshire before representing Aberdeen in two separate spells in 2018/2019.
The defender has made 22 appearances for Aberdeen this season scoring two goals and is well-liked by the club’s fans. With The Dons ready to close the gap between themselves and champions Celtic next season, Lowe will be one of the first names on the club’s shopping list this summer.
