Aberdeen’s Niall McGinn has disclosed that he isn’t sure if he will still be at Pittodrie next season. The veteran attacker is out of contract at the end of the season and as yet has not agreed a new deal.
McGinn hopes that he can earn a new deal though by performing well between now and the end of the season for Derek McInnes’ side.
“My contract is up at the end of the season” he said (Evening Express).
“All that is on my mind”
“All that is on my mind at the moment is trying to get as many games between now and then. Hopefully I can do that and show I can warrant another contract here” McGinn continued.
The player does admit though that the impact of Covid-19 on football finances might have an impact on any new deal. Even if he does leave Pittodrie, McGinn, who is 33-years-old, isn’t planning on hanging up his boots.
“Have to wait and see”
“We just have to wait and see, although it is obviously hard with the circumstances financially with the club moving forward. There is still another season or two left. I feel good physically, and I will keep working away behind the scenes” McGinn stated.
McGinn has been in and out of the Aberdeen side this season. However, he did start the most recent game, the 1-0 win over St Mirren. Indeed, he played a key part in the game’s only goal. His cross was headed home by Callum Hendry.
It would not be surprising after that impact against St Mirren to see McGinn keep his place in the starting line-up against Celtic on Saturday.
