Aberdeen FC history was made at St Johnstone last Sunday when Andrew Considine became only the sixth player to make 500 senior appearances for the football club, joining celebrated company in Willie Miler, Alex McLeish, Bobby Clark, Stewart McKimmie and Jim Leighton.
So, we rightly pay tribute to Andy in this week’s special publication. There are a number of features plus an indepth interview:
“Here at Aberdeen, I think I could get to 600 games. If we keep getting to Europe that helps! The biggest thing is looking after myself and keeping myself fit. Touch wood, I have not had a lot of injuries and if I avoid them, then the appearances will continue to rack up, though I think I’d need a pretty long contract to get anywhere near Willie Miller!
“I have always looked after myself. I’ve never been blessed with pace, so I feel that doing my upper body weights helps, but it did hold me back for a while as I was overdoing it. I feel now I am in the best shape of my career and if I can keep on top of that then there is no reason why I can’t play more games and climb higher up the appearances table.
“My ambition is certainly to finish my career at Aberdeen. We’ve now moved out to Cormack Park. It is the move the club have been desperate for, for 10 or 15 years, but we finally got there. We’ve only been out there for a week or two but it already feels like home. Everybody is together.
“I was out coaching with the U14s the other day and having all the youths together, it really is such a game changer. It gives players, young and old, the chance to practice as much as possible before and after training. It can only be good for the long term future of the club.
The Development Don interview is with Lloyd Robertson whilst there is a Former Player’s Feature with Gordon Strachan who was inducted into the AFC Hall of Fame last week. Plus, our usual columnists, our extensive history and stats sections.
