Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson has hailed team-mate Graeme Shinnie – and claimed that the Scotland international doesn’t get the credit he deserves for his performances.
The Dons’ skipper has been a model of consistency at Pittodrie in recent seasons and Ferguson believes a “lot of people don’t notice” Shinnie’s ability.
Ferguson also thinks his captain is “always” the best player in training as he raved about the former Inverness Caley Thistle ace.
“The way Graeme gets about the pitch and his fitness are second to none. He always is the best player in training,” Ferguson said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“A lot of people don’t notice how good a footballer he actually is.
“They see him as a machine but he is much more than that and a lot of his qualities go unnoticed.”
Shinnie has made 41 appearances so far this season for the Dons and is part of Alex McLeish’s Scotland squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kazakhstan and San Marino.
The midfielder has been linked with a move to Luton Town at the end of the season when his Pittodrie contract ends, according to the Daily Express.
Shinnie has also been linked with a move to Rangers this summer but the Dons are hopeful of keeping their captain in the Granite City.
