Aberdeen won a vital league game 2-1 against Hibernian at Easter Road on Saturday.

The win saw the Dons move up to third place in the Scottish Premiership table.

The man who scored the winning goal – Gary Mackay-Steven.

Mackay-Steven has been mentioned in dispatches recently with leaving Aberdeen.

Indeed, Sky Sports reported that MLS side New York City approached Mackay-Steven with a view to signing for them.

As yet the player has not decided if to make the move to New York, telling BBC North East Scotland Twitter that he would need time to think the move over.

A twist in the tale is that unlike most of world football the MLS transfer window did not shut at the end of January.

Indeed, it opens on February 13th and closes on May 7th.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is well aware of this though, and he has indicated to the Evening Express that the player is willing to stay with Aberdeen until the end of the season.

If Mackay-Steven does leave Pittodrie at the end of season, he will be missed.

His goal against Hibernian was his sixth of the season, a decent return for a winger.

Mackay-Steven has had a good career in Scotland, at Dundee United, Celtic and now Aberdeen.

Perhaps he is wanting a change and New York is as good as place as any to move to.

We shall find out soon enough where his future lies.
