Well failed to follow up last weekend's 2-1 win at Hearts but remain second in the SPL table and have all but sealed a place in the top six.

McCall said: "I thought the first half was a really poor game. There wasn't much goalmouth incident until Darren Randolph's really good save just before half time.

"We don't get many clean sheets so we're delighted with that one today. We've taken four points from two tough away games, which we're pleased with."

McCall felt his side could have had a late penalty when substitute Zaine Francis-Angol went down under the challenge of Joe Shaughnessy.

He added: "On another day we might have had a penalty kick, but it would have been rough justice on Aberdeen if we had got it and scored it. The most we deserved today was a point.

"Shaughnessy tried to get a foot on the ball and I don't think he got a touch, but he brought our player down.

"It was a gritty performance. We didn't really enjoy the game, but we enjoyed the point. We're more than pleased with the point because Aberdeen came on strong in the second half.

"The point almost cements us in the top six which was the main aim at the start of the season."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
