The Dons' boss was named manager of the year, one of four honours the club picked up at a ceremony in Glasgow last Sunday.

And McInnes told the Daily Record: "I went to the PFA dinner last year and presented a trophy and I was at another awards dinner where Aberdeen barely got a mention.

"That didn't sit well with me. Everyone else was getting plaudits and rightly so but we were nowhere near it.

"So it's nice I've two players in the team of the year, a player picking up the goal of the season and myself picking up an award.

"So I think we've improved and what we've got to do is improve for next season. I still think there's a lot more to come from us and we've got to strive for that improvement."

And McInnes also paid tribute to his right-hand man Tony Docherty regarding the club's excellent run of performances this campaign.

The Dons are currently second in the table - and heading towards a spot in the Europa League - while they ended 19 years without a trophy by winning the League Cup.

He added: "Like any award, mine is because of the efforts of others.

"We've worked hard this year, we've got good players. I've also got good staff supporting me and none more so than Tony. His input is invaluable to me."
