We continue our end of season review of some of the most notable players in Scottish football with a review of Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna’s season.
Aberdeen centre-back Scott McKenna has enjoyed another solid season at the heart of the Dons defence.
Stood-out in cup runs
He was a mainstay for the side, making 39 appearances, and put in some superb performances in the Dons’ runs to the Betfred Cup Final and the Scottish Cup semi-final.
If the Dons were to have their way, McKenna would stay at the club for years to come. However, that might not be the case.
McKenna has already been subject to multi-million pound bids in his time with the Dons.
Multiple bids turned down
Celtic had a bid of £3.5 million turned down by Aberdeen last August. Aston Villa also had a bid rebuffed last August, whilst Stoke had a bid rejected in January.
It seems inevitable that clubs will come in for McKenna once more in the summer transfer window. At least if he does depart Pittodrie Aberdeen will get a huge transfer fee. However, the Dons would no doubt rather keep McKenna for as long as possible.
Since McKenna became a mainstay in the Aberdeen team, he has only got better each season. His improvements continued last season. Only time will tell if last season will prove to be McKenna’s last in Aberdeen.
