Aberdeen Pair Scoop Monthly Awards

Last updated : 24 March 2014 By Stand Free Ed

Boss McInnes has been named as the SPFL Premiership Manager of the Month, with striker Adam Rooney named Player of the Month for February.

McInnes’ side won four out of five games in February, and ended Celtic’s undefeated run in the Premiership with an impressive victory at Pittodrie.

And the gaffer - in his first full season at the club - put pen to paper on a new contract last Friday.

Rooney scored in all three of the Dons’ Premiership matches in February, and hit the back of the net in their League Cup semi-final win against St Johnstone.

The striker has been flying since joining the Dons in January with fans already comparing him favourably with fellow red-headed hot-shot Duncan Sheearer.

The pair took Aberdeen's trophy total for the week to three after the club won the Scottish League Cup final in dramatic fashion last Sunday.
