Michael Rose signs for 16/17

Central defender Michael Rose is the latest signing by Ian McCall as he builds his squad for the Championship.

The manager said :”Absolutely delighted to get this deal done as Michael was wanted by several other clubs. He is a highly rated central defender who is a big presence in both boxes. I know that it was a tough decision by Aberdeen to let him go and it could have gone either way. What he needs now is game time to really show his potential.”

Michael said :”I have spent my whole career at Aberdeen and what I need now is to be playing football every week and that’s what I will be aiming for now. The Championship is going to be a really competitive league this season however we have some really good players and will be competitive. I watched the play off final and saw the crowd that Ayr had on the day so I know the potential that’s here.”

Michael is 20 and has spent his career at Aberdeen. Last season he had a short loan spell at Forfar.
