Celtic player signs for Aberdeen

Updated: July 5, 2012

Aberdeen have completed the signing of Northern Ireland winger Niall McGinn on a free transfer from SPL rivals Celtic.

The Derry born winger struggled to nail down a first team berth during a two year spell at Parkhead and spent last season on loan at League One side Brentford.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Brentford last season and playing week in and week out has, I believe, made me a better player. Aberdeen is a great football club. From playing against Aberdeen in the past I know that there is a great fan base. Hopefully I can get the fans on their feet with some exciting performances and doing well for the team,” said 24 year old McGinn.
