GRAEME SHINNIE will replace Ryan Jack as captain of Aberdeen for Saturday's Scottish Cup final against Celtic.

The Dons revealed on Tuesday that the former Inverness player will take the armband off the 25-year-old for the final game of the 2016/17 campaign at Hampden Park. 

Jack is widely tipped to make a summer switch to Rangers after his contract at Pittodrie expires at the end of the month. 

The Aberdeen-born midfielder is a product of the club's youth system but will make his final appearance for his side as they attempt to ruin Celtic's ambitions of securing their fourth Treble.
