Striker Anderson signs new Aberdeen deal

Aberdeen's Bruce Anderson.

Bruce Anderson has signed a new Aberdeen deal tying him to the club until 2021, the club have announced.

The striker, 19, penned the new three-year deal after breaking into the Dons first team at the start of the campaign – scoring a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Rangers on his debut.

Anderson told the Aberdeen FC website: “I’m over the moon. It didn’t take me long to make my decision. It’s no secret I’m a big Aberdeen fan, so I’m delighted.

“I only had a year left on my contract so that was in the back of my mind, but all that’s sorted now so I can get my head down and really focus on my football and hopefully keep scoring goals.

“I was always confident that if I got a chance I’d take it, so I can’t complain with how the start of the season has went. Now it’s just down to me to push on.

“There is a really good group of young players coming through at the club. We’re all pals outside of football and it’s been a really good start to the season for all the young boys. You can see it with the number of minutes the manager has given us on the pitch and it’s down to us to really take our chances.”
