Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass admits he doesn’t know where in-demand defender Calvin Ramsay sees his long-term future amid links to a host of English Premier League clubs but insists the teenager is going to be a “top, top” player.

Everton, West Ham, Leicester City and Southampton have all been credited with an interest in the Scotland under-21 starlet after bursting through into the first-team at Pittodrie and impressing under Glass.

The former Atlanta United coach has been delighted with how the 18-year-old has been progressing as Ramsay continues to catch the eye and earn rave reviews in the Granite City, saying: “Calvin is so level-headed and is taking everything in his stride.

“To me that is of the biggest importance, for that to continue, to blank out the outside noise that is going on about him and his performance level.

“He’s happy to be an Aberdeen player and delighted with the progress he’s making at the minute and the attention he gets here.

“Some of the stuff he is doing well is because of being straightforward in games – he does what he does and he’s going to be a top, top professional.

 

“He knows what he needs to do to get to where he wants to be.

“To be honest, I don’t know where he wants to be long-term.

“Whatever is going to happen for him long-term it’ll be based on what he does here in a red jersey.”

Ramsay is under contract at Pittodrie until the summer of 2024 so the Dons are under no pressure to sell the teenager – although the prospect of a move down south is sure to be enticing.
