Stevie May Takes No83 Jersey At Aberdeen In Tribute To Cup Winners’ Cup Heroes

Stevie May Takes No83 Jersey At Aberdeen In Tribute To Cup Winners’ Cup Heroes

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Aberdeen had originally made a bid for the player back in June but the deal was delayed due to a change of management at the Championship side.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.”
