Aberdeen Scottish Premiership

McInnes agrees new Aberdeen deal

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes and his assistant Tony Docherty have signed new deals that will keep them at the club until 2022...

McInnes has been in charge at Pittodrie since 2013 and guided the Dons to League Cup glory the following year. The Dons have reached a number of other cup finals during his reign and finished runners-up to Celtic in the Premiership four years in a row.

Chairman Stuart Milne told the club website: “I think everyone recognises what Derek has achieved during his time at the club and I am delighted he has agreed to extend his time at Pittodrie, making him our longest-serving manager since Sir Alex Ferguson."

McInnes added: "With the opening of our new training campus at Kingsford on the horizon I am excited about the prospect of training professionally in a modern facility, something which should be in keeping with the ambitious club we are.

“It’s no secret that I love working for this club and I will strive to continue to try and create those special moments for our supporters. Working closely together I believe this is possible."
