Aberdeen had the worst night ever in the Europa League

When the Aberdeen coaching staff sit down to go through last night's Europa League match away to Slovenia's NK Maribor, they will be forced to conclude that, yes, mistakes were made, and yes, things could definitely have gone better.

The Dons, runners-up in the Scottish League, crashed out of the competition 2-1 on aggregate following what can only be described as an absolute disaster of a night.

BOOM: They were awarded a penalty in the 24th minute - but if the referee had played advantage, they would have scored

CRASH: Adam Rooney's weak spot-kick was then saved

WALLOP: Substitute Jayden Stockley was sent-off for two very soft bookings, just eight minutes after coming on to the pitch

WHAT A SHOCKER: They then conceded this - frankly hilarious - own goal in the fourth minute of injury time

Let's just pretend this match never happened, eh lads?
