Aberdeen recently announced that the management team of Derek McInnes and Tony Docherty signed new deals to keep at Pittodrie until 2022.

The news should give the Dons a boost ahead of their return to European action. They take on RoPS in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Fans on social media seemed pleased about the announcement. One fan in particular described it as ‘fantastic  news’.

Here are some of the best reactions from social media to the news of McInnes’ new deal:

In a way, it is not a surprise that the management duo have signed a new deal at Aberdeen. Aberdeen are in need of stability, especially with a move to a new stadium on the agenda.

The Dons have been Celtic’s biggest challengers in the league recently but Aberdeen did slump to a fourth placed finish last season.

The board at Pittodrie will be hoping for better in the league season to come. One interesting note to take from the comments on social media is the supporter hoping that the Dons management team can ‘show more than one league cup’.

That is of course a reference to the fact that since McInnes took over as Aberdeen boss, the Dons have only managed to win one trophy.

They have reached three finals since then, so there is hope that another trophy can be won by McInnes.
