The Dons captain produced one of his best performances for the Dons as they won 4-1 at Pittodrie in the early Scottish Premiership game of the day.
Gary Mackay-Steven will no doubt steal the headlines due to his devastating display in setting up Shinnie for the opener before scoring a hat-trick of his own.
