Nicky Weaver: Knows he will have to fight for his place at Pittodrie

The former England U21 stopper penned a six-month deal with the Dons on Monday after being released by Sheffield Wednesday.

Weaver is keen to get some game-time under his belt but the 34-year-old knows he will have to work hard for any opportunities that come his way.

Weaver said: "I want to play but I'm sure Jamie will have something to say about that.

"He's been the number one here for quite some time and he's obviously a very able keeper. I think he played just about every game last year.

"I'm under no illusions. I don't feel as though I'm going to walk straight into the team.

"All I can do is my best in training. If and when I get an opportunity, it's up to me to take it."

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
