Aberdeen Player of the Year winner Andrew Considine today challenged the Reds to finish an “incredible” season in glory.
Defender Considine scooped both Player of the Year prizes at the Dons’ annual awards ceremony at the AECC.
Now he wants more silverware by lifting the Scottish Cup in the May 27 final against Celtic.
But first Considine is targeting a win over Hearts on Sunday to secure a Premiership runners-up finish.
Considine said: “It has been an incredible season so far. The boys have been unreal but we still have some very important games to go.
“Last Saturday (2-0 home loss to St Johnstone) we let things slip a bit but we are ready to bounce back.
“We have had a good number of training sessions already this week which have been tough.
“We will make sure we are ready to go on Sunday (against Hearts).”
Considine won the honours ahead of Jonny Hayes who is on the four-man short-list for PFA Scotland Player of the Year.
Aberdeen’s longest-serving current player, Considine has made 46 appearances this season and scored six goals.
Considine first secured the Players’ Player of the Year award which was decided by a private ballot of first team players.
In the finale to the ceremony at the AECC he then lifted the Aberdeen FC Player of the Year award, voted for by supporters.
The players who received the most fans’ votes after Considine were, in alphabetical order, Kenny McLean and Graeme Shinnie.
Considine said: “It is an absolute honour.
“The Players’ Player award, to have your team mates think you are the best player over the course of the season, is fantastic.
“It is a privilege to win the award especially on the back of such a strong season.
“Then to win the Player of the Year, to have the fans vote for me, is also extremely special.
“They watch us every week and follow us through thick and thin.
“Ever since I first pulled on a red jersey when I was a 17-year-old, the fans have always been fantastic with me and I really appreciate their support. I can’t thank them enough.
“There were so many players who could have won the award which shows just how good a season we have had.
“Kenny and Graeme who made the top three have been outstanding.
“Jonny Hayes this week made the final nominees for the PFA award so it was a shock not to see him on the stage, along with so many other players in this team.”
In February Considine penned a new two-year deal until summer 2019.
He said: “I love this club and am really enjoying my football right now.”
Norwich City’s James Maddison, on loan for the first half of the campaign, won Goal of the Season for his sensational late free-kick to secure a 2-1 home win over Rangers last September.
Midfielder Ryan Christie, who arrived on loan from Celtic in January, won the club’s Young Player of the Year.
Bruce Anderson was named Development Player of the Year.
