NIALL McGinn today vowed to strengthen Aberdeen’s lead at the top of the Premiership to complete his dream week.
The 28-year-old attacker helped Northern Ireland qualify for the Euro finals for the first time.
It was the first time the Irish had qualified for the finals of a major tournament since the 1986 World Cup.
McGinn’ sensational week got even better when he picked up the Ladbrokes Player of the Month award for September.
Now he is determined to cap the best week of his career by helping the Dons beat Ross County on Friday to pile the pressure on defending champions Celtic.
McGinn said: “The award has topped off an unbelievable week for me after that happened on the international stage.
“Not only qualifying for the finals in France but doing it as the first country to win the group after being drawn in Pot 5 was beyond our wildest dreams.
“I wasn’t even born the last time Northern Ireland qualified for a major tournament so to go down in history as being part of that is incredible.
“My ambitions are to keep producing for Aberdeen and make sure I stay fit and healthy so that when Northern Ireland matches come round I’m part of the plans.
“With Aberdeen we just want to get our early season momentum back and start winning again.
” It would be great to end the first set of eleven games as league leaders.”
