Stevie May will wear the number 83 jersey for Aberdeen.
The move is a tribute to the Dons’ greatest ever triumph.
The ‘May 83′ shirt hails the Pittodrie club’s historic 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the Cup Winners’ Cup Final back in 1983.
It was originally announced that the forward would wear the number 18.
But today, the Dons released a video announcing the tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson’s legendary side.

The former St Johnstone striker completed his move to Aberdeen from Preston on a four-year deal last night.
May was handed his Saints debut by Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes as a 16-year-old while he was in charge at McDiarmid Park.
Aberdeen had originally made a bid for the player back in June but the deal was delayed due to a change of management at the Championship side.
May, who has one Scotland cap, said: “The manager has made no secret about trying to get me in the past, which is flattering,
“It’s good to finally get the deal done which I think is right for both parties and I just can’t wait to get started.”
