With Barry Robson being the only senior player offered new terms when our retained/released list was announced, manager Derek McInnes has said the player has again agreed to take a pay cut to remain at the club.

In quotes carried by the Daily Record with it believed that pen will soon be put to paper on a 12 month extension for Robson, McInnes explained.

‘Barry`s motivation is to play for Aberdeen and it has never been important financially. When Barry first came here two years ago it was not for a lot of money. He actually earned less again last year and will earn less again next season. Barry has shown a level of performance over the last two to three months that made me make that decision on a deal.’

Moving onto Andrew Considine, he rubbished suggestions that the game against Dundee was meaningless, explaining that the gaffer and the players are determined to see the season out in the right manner despite being confirmed in second place for the season.

‘The manager said that since he has been here we have never lost three games on the bounce. He is proud of that. We didn`t want that to happen. I think we would have got our heads ripped off if that was the case. The boys respect the manager. Having that fiery side is what the boys need to see now and then because it shows that he cares. He and Tony Docherty do care. If somebody needs their backside kicked then they will do that. But thankfully Adam came up with the goal at the end to make sure they didn`t need to.’

He went on to say that he felt the team had been ‘fantastic’ this year and we’ve played good football at times, but also really dug in at others to ensure we got results when games were tough, and he felt the fans would’ve again seen them dig in to earn the point in the last one.

‘There was nothing to play for but we still took down 2000 fans to Dundee. That is incredible and it shows how much it means to them. The boys need to show it means just as much to them – and you could see by how much we celebrated at the end how much it means to us.’

As above with Robson being offered a new deal, Considine added about him.

‘It is great that Barry is going to continue. He is a cracking player. He is 36 but he has shown he still has the legs to get about.’
