Scottish Star Recovering From Hypothermia After Being Pulled From Glasgow River

Scottish Star Recovering From Hypothermia After Being Pulled From Glasgow River

Gary Mackay-Steven is lucky to be alive after being pulled from a river in Glasgow in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The 26-year-old Aberdeen winger only joined the club this summer, after two-and-a-half years at Celtic. He was reportedly out with friends in Glasgow on Saturday night after his side played Partick Thistle.

On Monday morning, Aberdeen released a statement claiming their new signing was "recovering well" at home.

The club can confirm Gary Mackay-Steven was involved in an incident in the River Kelvin on Sunday morning.

He was treated for hypothermia but is now at home and recovering well.

On behalf of Gary, the club extends its thanks to the emergency services involved.

The club will not be commenting further on the matter.

He was pulled from the river by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Services before being brought to hospital, where he was treated for hypothermia.

Mackay-Steven has impressed for Aberdeen since joining the club. He scored in the 2-0 win over Bosnia's Siroki Brijeg in the Europa League qualifiers last month, but has yet to find the net in the league.
