Sir Alex Ferguson and Willie Miller are two of the names which have been suggested for a statue outside Aberdeen FC’s proposed new stadium.
The Dons officially lodged their application for their new stadium, training ground and community facilities at Kingsford in January.
The development, which would be situated close to the bypass, would see a training facility completed first, and be available to use in 2018.
It is hoped the 20,000-capacity stadium – which has taken inspiration from Bristol City’s Ashton Gate stadium – could be completed by the start of the 2020/21 season.
A poll has been conducted by the Kingsford Stadium group, gathering the thoughts from hundreds of people on the possibility of having a statue of a Dons legend erected outside the ground.
Sir Alex Ferguson, left, and Willie Miller, right, topped the poll, which was voted on by more than 800 people. Both gathered 45% of the vote, while 10% believed other Dons legends would be more worthy.
Today, George Yule, executive vice chairman of Aberdeen Football Club, said the club would consider a statue if the public feeling was strong enough.
He said: “Celebrating the rich heritage of Aberdeen Football Club is an important element of our proposals, which include a memorial garden, a heritage museum and a fan zone.
“We welcome feedback from fans about what they want to see at the new facilities as we look to deliver the best possible community and sporting facilities for the region that will provide the foundation for the future success of the club as well as being an inspiration for future generations in this region.”
