Russell Anderson: Extends Dons stay

The 34-year-old defender has made 26 appearances this season, moving on from the injury problems that often undermined his spell in England with Sunderland and Derby.

Anderson told the club's official website: "I've always said the day I don't feel up for the rigours of the SPL, I'll stop there and then but right now, I'm as fit as I have been and I'm really looking forward to at least another year playing.

"I started my career at Aberdeen and it's fitting that I'll finish my playing career here as well."

Aberdeen chief executive Duncan Fraser added: "Russell's influence both on and off the park is absolutely immense and he is a club captain in the true sense of the word.

"He has always said he wants to carry on playing for as long as he feels able to do so and everyone at the Club is delighted for him."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
