Aberdonian Denis Law to be honoured by University of Aberdeen.
Aberdeen-born Denis Law is the elder statesman of Scottish football. The outstanding Scottish player scored 30 international goals in 55 matches for his National Team, the record number of goals scored (shared with Kenny Dalglish) by an individual player for Scotland. He was recognised as European Footballer of the Year award in 1964. Although Denis Law retired from the game in 1974 after playing for Scotland in the World Cup his opinion is still actively sought by the media.
Despite never playing for Aberdeen, The Lawman is revered by Dons fans and has never forgotten his roots; to this day speaking with a recognisable Doric twang.
