Jamie Langfield has been told that his Aberdeen career has the potential to be revived but he will have to keep impressing the management and hope Derek Soutar does not prove himself to be a worthy successor.

With the links to Kasper Schmeichel running dry since they were first mentioned a few weeks ago and Calderwood stating that he fully intends to give Soutar his chance, Langfield is still number 2 in the goalkeeping order and will replace Soapy if he is injured or deemed to be simply not good enough.

Dons fans have made it clear that they do not have much confidence in Soutar in our regular polls as they voted that the goalkeeping spot was the most critical area that needed strengthening and young Schmeichel was the man they wanted in.

Nothing seems to be happening on that front although Jimmy has the pre-season to change his mind and although he is publicly backing Soutar, there is every chance he`ll have someone possibly lined up to replace him already and Soutar will be getting judged in everything he does in matches starting from tonight as the Dons take on Cove Rangers.

Calderwood spoke highly of Jamie Langfield since the Magaluf incident that resulted in the ‘keeper being banished to the reserves and told reporters that if Jamie keeps showing the same attitude, performance and determination he may yet succeed in winning back his starting jersey and the contract that was not surprisingly ripped up.
