Ferne Snoyl has said that he has gone from the tidy, passing, neat player who arrived at Pittodrie to one of the hardest men in the Dutch league when he returned back to his homeland.

Jimmy Calderwood brought Ferne to the club last season on loan from Feyenoord after a tip off from a source in Holland and wanted to keep the Dutchman after he impressed during his time at Pittodrie. Ferne returned back to his homeland because the clubs couldn`t agree personal terms and he now plays for NEC Nijmegen, a club Calderwood once managed.

Ferne has spoken out about his time in Scotland and admits he wouldn`t have missed it for the world despite now picking up too many yellow cards for his over exuberant tackling and the refs asking if he thinks he`s still in Scotland.

The 21 year old gave his personal views on Scottish football and despite insisting the experience was good for him, he was not particularly complimentary.

He said “The manner of play is completely different now I`m back home to what it was at Aberdeen”.

“The workrate and the physical power in the football in Scotland is from another dimension”.

He then went on to say that “Celtic are the only team who play really good football while with the rest of the teams it`s all about muscles”.

Nonsense Ferne, there are plenty of teams in Scotland who can`t play good football and haven`t got any muscle either.
