Aberdeen captain Graeme Shinne has pleaded with Dons fans for patience as he makes his mind up over where his future lies.
The Dons skipper is out of contract in the summer but has been offered an extension by manager Derek McInnes.
Shinnie admits it is a “massive decision” and that he isn’t in a rush to come to a decision.
“Give it time,” he said, as quoted by The Herald.
“I’m at an age where this is a massive decision for me and I’m not going to rush into it.
“But games like Saturday’s show my commitment to the team and that my mind is never away from it. I’m always focused on this club. To be fair, words are not what will show it, it’s performances.”
The 27-year-old scored a double in the weekend win over St. Johnstone as the Dons kept up the pressure on Rangers in second place in the league.
After joining his boyhood heroes from Inverness CT four years ago, Shinnie has made 177 appearances for the Dons.
Shinnie succeeded Ryan Jack as captain after Jack left Pittodrie to join Rangers in 2017 when his contract ended.
Losing such an important player would be a massive blow for the Dons and manager Derek McInnes will be hoping Shinnie’s love for the club is enough to sway his decision.
