Aberdeen legend Russell Anderson has declared himself pleased with Aberdeen’s summer transfer business so far.

He is particularly delighted that the club managed to sign Craig Bryson, who he feels can make a big impact for the Dons in the upcoming season.

Anderson did admit though that the Dons could find it tough in Europe, with such an early start to the season to contend with.

“Derek McInnes has managed to get his work done fairly early which is good” he said, as reported by the Evening Express.

“A great signing”

“He’s up against it with the early start in the European games, which is far from ideal. But it looks like he has recruited well and I think Craig Bryson is a great signing.”

Of the signings Aberdeen have made, Bryson is probably the stand-out name.

A key man for the Dons

With the departure of Graeme Shinnie Aberdeen needed a big player to replace him. Bryson certainly seems to fit the bill.

A number of the Dons’ new signings could take part in the Europa League clash against RoPS on Thursday. Bryson could be just the man to inspire the Dons to victory and a good start to the season.
