Aberdeen Football Club captain Russell Anderson has extended his stay for an additional twelve months until the end of next season.

Pittodrie Chief Executive Duncan Fraser commented. "Russell's influence both on and off the park is absolutely immense and he is a club captain in the true sense of the word. He has always said he wants to carry on playing for as long as he feels able to do so and everyone at the Club is delighted for him."

The 34 year old, in his second spell at Pittodrie, is up for the challenge. "I've always said the day I don't feel up for the rigours of the SPL, I'll stop there and then but right now, I'm as fit as I have been and I'm really looking forward to at least another year playing. I started my career at Aberdeen and it's fitting that I'll finish my playing career here as well."
