Shinnie was at the heart of the Dons midfield as they secured second spot in the league and was given the captaincy after Ryan Jack left for Rangers.
The 26-year-old earned his first Scotland call-up for the friendly against the Netherlands and could become a regular as the Euro 2020 qualifiers loom – and it’d be long overdue!
The fact he’s looked so comfortable in central midfield, when he was predominately a left-back, simply speaks to his talent and never-say-die attitude.
Simply put, he’d be a massive loss to the Dons if he were to leave.
What They Said
“Shinnie has taken on the captains armband excellently and now epitomises what Aberdeen FC is about; hard work, determination, drive and honesty. Shinnie has undoubtedly been the Dons’ most consistent performer.”
