Matty Kennedy has revealed he made the decision to join Aberdeen out of a desire to go to cup finals and win trophies.

The winger joined Derek McInnes’ side earlier than planned in January on a three-and-a-half-year deal from St Johnstone having already agreed a pre-contract, and has made nine appearances for the club so far.

Kennedy has clearly made an immediate impression on McInnes having started all but one game since his arrival, and the ace is already proving a popular figure at Pittodrie.

Speaking about why he chose to make the switch to Aberdeen, Kennedy said: “The manager was the main reason I came, and obviously the size of the club and the history. It was a no-brainer when Aberdeen were interested.

“I want to go to cup finals, I want to win trophies. I think I’m good enough to play in a team that can go to finals. That is a reason why I came.

“I’m getting more and more game time. I get on well with every boy in the team, it’s a great team, a great changing room. I’m starting to get to know the boys’ runs.

“It is all going in the right direction.”

Up next for Aberdeen is Kilmarnock at Rugby Park in the Premiership, a place where the Dons are unbeaten on their last 16 visits.

Livewire Kennedy will be hoping for more joy having scored his only goal for the club so far in the 4-3 win in the Scottish Cup a couple of weeks ago.
