Andy Considine has been a stalwart for Aberdeen football club since 2003. He could have signed for Rangers as a youngster but instead committed himself to his beloved Aberdeen.
What a decision that was as he is adored by Dons fans and has had some incredible highlights. Winning the League Cup in 2014 being the major highlight in a career dedicated to the Dons so far.
Playing in Europe multiple times for Aberdeen is another big highlight – notably in the Dons famous 2-2 draw against German giants Bayern Munich in 2008.
He’s also captained the side on multiple occasions and scored an important winner at Celtic Park for his side as well. This is a player who is no mug. His cap for the national side has been a long time coming in my view.
17 years since his Dons debut, last night he made his debut for the Scotland national team. A proud moment for him and his family I am sure and it is safe to say he didn’t let anyone down.
Post match, he stated that he was nervous about starting for his country but that playing with better players eases that pressure.
A dream come true for Considine and with seven games unbeaten, Scotland are in a strong run of form even if performances have been topsy turvy.
