Derek McInnes has issued a big ‘thanks’ to the board for backing him in the transfer market on deadline day, with the signing of Kenny McLean of particular delight to him.

Aberdeen hadn’t paid a fee since 2008 when we signed Sone Aluko from Birmingham, who we sold to Rangers who of course now plays in the Premier League with Hull, but we smashed that fee with £300,000 paid to St Mirren for McLean on Monday.

McInnes wanted to bring in the 23-year-old, he went to the board and they backed him with him telling the Evening Express how grateful he is for that backing.

‘McLean is a fantastic, exciting signing. This is the first time we have had to pay a fee since I came to the club.

‘I would like to thank the board for getting the deal done.’

I’m sure that McLean will be worth every penny, at least I hope so! As I’m sure we all are as this is a real statement of intent and is huge backing of McInnes….
