Aberdeen defender Andrew Considine has been praised by the Dons manager Derek McInnes for his fine performances this season.

The Banchory-raised defender has been in great form and has been a key part of the Dons’ success so far in the 2014/2015-league campaign.

A product of the Aberdeen youth academy, Andrew has made 24 appearances this season, managing two goals with the latest coming against Hamilton Academical.

The 27-year-old was rewarded for his consistency by signing a two-year contract extension in December 2014, keeping him at the club until 2017.

The centre-back turned left back, who made his debut under Steve Paterson in May 2004 against Dundee, has had over 200 appearances for the top-flight outfit. Named player of the year for the 2011-12 season, the defender is currently in his testimonial year with a friendly against Dutch Eredivisie side, FC Twente to look forward to on March 25

Andrew will be under pressure next season with the signing of Inverness Caledonian Thistle left-back Graeme Shinnie, who signed on a pre-contract agreement in the January window.

With the arrival of Shinnie in the summer the competition for places will be greatly increased in the left back position at Pittodrie.
