Former Derry City man Niall McGinn rejoins Aberdeen

Niall McGinn has rejoined his old club Aberdeen on a three and a half year deal.

McGinn left Aberdeen for South Korean club Gwangju in July last of this year but the move did not work out.

Manager Derek McInnes told the club’s official website: “Niall is a player I really enjoyed working with in the past so I was really keen to work with him again when the opportunity arose. I think he is a player who has always brought a high level of performance.

“Everyone from all the staff at the club, to his team-mates, to the supporters, we will all welcome him back and we are looking forward to Niall picking up where he left off.

“He has been right up there in terms of goals and assists over the past five years. If he can replicate what he has done for us in the past then we will all be very pleased.

“Hopefully he can help us maintain the standards we have set.”

McGinn featured 31 times for Derry City under Stephen Kenny in the 2008/2009 season scoring 6 times and also won the League Cup with the Candy Stripes.
