If, as expected, Andy Considine plays at the back for Aberdeen on their Premiership visit to St Johnstone, he will reach 500 appearances for the Pittodrie club.
It’s been 15-and-a-half years since the Banchory stopper’s debut, aged 17, against Dundee in May 2004.
Surely set to be remembered as a bonafide club legend, Considine was given a testimonial against FC Twente of the Netherlands four years ago, however, there have been many memorable matches in his time with the Dons.
He sits sixth in the Reds’ all-time appearances list.
Here are five matches featuring Considine which stand out:
20/12/07: Aberdeen 4 Copenhagen 0
This famous Pittodrie night under boss Jimmy Calderwood which saw Aberdeen seal a place in the last-32 of the UEFA Cup was Considine’s third start of the group campaign. On what was a good night for every Don as they got a win to secure progression and a high-profile clash with Bayern Munich, Considine was in a defence which kept a clean sheet when it mattered.
12/04/08: Aberdeen 3 Queen of the South 4
In what was a truly dismal day for the club in a Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden against First Division opponents, Considine probably just received pass marks as he twice drew the Dons level at 1-1 and 3-3.
03/10/13: Motherwell 0 Aberdeen 2
An 84th-minute opener at Fir Park in a team performance which sealed a League Cup semi-final is hugely significant, when you consider the Dons – down to 10 men against the Steelmen – went on to lift the trophy in March. Considine had only been sent on after Joe Shaughnessy was dismissed early on, with his goal a towering back-post header.
31/03/17: Dundee 0 Aberdeen 7
Considine’s first career hat-trick came at Dens Park, when he scored goals in 17th, 39th and 83rd minute. The defender said the game had been a “fantastic early birthday present” ahead of his 30th the next day and was “another thing ticked off the list” in his career.
13/05/18: Celtic 0 Aberdeen 1
It was Considine who sealed (finally) Aberdeen’s first league win at Celtic Park for 14 years on the last day of the 2017/18 season. The stalwart lashed left-footed past home keeper Scott Bain after a Kenny McLean pass, with the win also meaning Derek McInnes’ finished Premiership runners-up.
