Niall McGinn Posts Classy Goodbye Message to Aberdeen After Making Gwangju Move

Niall McGinn posted a classy goodbye message to Aberdeen after sealing his surprise move to Gwangju in South Korea.

The Northern Irishman was always leaving Pittodrie this summer after his contract at the club reached its expiration.

He had been linked with a number of clubs too, including Bolton and Sheffield United.

But McGinn has made the unusual decision of moving to another continent, signing for K League outfit Gwangju FC.

And upon confirmation of that switch, the winger took to Twitter to say his farewell to Aberdeen and the club’s fans after spending five very successful years there.

McGinn thanked the coaches he’s had at Aberdeen before going on to say that he’ll always be a supporter of the Dons. He then signed off with some Korean, which he promises to pick up while over there:

It’s an unusual move because McGinn is only 29 and you’d be confident of him securing a team down in the English Championship had he decided to stay in Britain.

But Korea must be an attractive option for a number of reasons so it will be interesting to see how he does while in the country.
