Connor McLennan Signs New Dons Contract

Connor McLennan has signed a new Aberdeen contract until the end of season 2020/21.

On signing Connor told the club website:  “As soon as I heard about it, I couldn’t wait to get the contract signed. It’s been a great week for me, having been involved in the Betfred Cup Final and then starting at Ibrox on Wednesday for what was a massive win. The team were all desperate to make amends for Sunday and it was a great feeling. My objective now is to cement a regular place in the first team.”

Manager Derek McInnes added. “It’s been ongoing for the last few weeks to get Connor agreed, thankfully we managed to do that so delighted to announce that he’s committed his future for the next few years. He’s one of a number of young players who we feel have a big part to play and he’s shown in recent weeks and months that he’s got a real capability and he’s a player that can only improve.

“He’s over his injury problems that have blighted him over the last couple of years and now that he’s getting a good run injury free, he’s starting to show everybody what he’s capable of and hopefully he can go from strength to strength and we’re looking forward to working with him over the next few seasons and looking to get even more from him.”
