Former Aberdeen captain Russell Anderson is hoping that current skipper Graeme Shinnie will sign a new deal at Pittodrie.

Shinnie’s deal expires at the end of the season, and Anderson has disclosed that he would like to see the player commit his future to the Dons.

“It’s not an easy decision which is why it does take time when it comes to it. I don’t know the ins and outs of it but I’m sure Graeme will come out and make his decision” he told the Press and Journal.

“Personally I’d like to see him stay because he’s been such a big player for the team since he’s been here.”

Shinnie has been one of the standout players for the Dons this season. He was a key man in their run to the Betfred Cup Final earlier this season.

More recently, he dominated the middle of the park in the Dons’ 1-1 draw with Rangers in the Scottish Cup. He will need to be at his best in the replay if the Dons are to reach the semi-final.

Derek McInnes will be hoping that Shinnie commits to the club, but as Shinnie’s contract is reaching the end that looks unlikely. However, only time will tell and time will tell where the Aberdeen captain will be playing next season.
