Aberdeen: Russell Anderson & Barry Robson sign new deals

Aberdeen captain Russell Anderson has agreed a new one-year contract, along with fellow veteran Barry Robson.

The 35-year-olds played key roles in a campaign that brought the League Cup to Pittodrie and a third place finish in the Premiership.

Midfielder Nicky Low, 22, has also signed a one-year deal.

Josh Magennis, Scott Vernon and Nicky Weaver have been released and Alan Tate has also left following the end of his loan spell from Swansea.

Vernon, 30, leaves after scoring 43 goals in four seasons, while Magennis was sent out on loan to St Mirren in January.

Defender Russell returned for a second spell with the Dons in January 2012, while midfielder Robson moved to Pittodrie last summer.

Low made his Dons debut in 2010 but has only become a first-team regular this season, making 17 appearances and scoring once.

"All three have made important contributions to the season just finished and I'm looking for them to play their part in the progression of the club next season," manager Derek McInnes told the club website. 

Meanwhile, Under-20 coach Neil Cooper is leaving Pittodrie.

he never had a look in with us, just not up to the required standard.

Was he not injured all the time he was here?

A quick look at Wiki confirms this:

27 June 2007, Anderson completed a £1 million transfer to Premiership club Sunderland, signing a three-year deal.

Anderson made his first appearance for Sunderland in a friendly match against Italian side Juventus on 4 August 2007. He came on as a substitute at the Stadium of Light with fifteen minutes of the match remaining. On 18 August 2007, he made his Premier League début as a substitute against Wigan Athletic, where he gave away a penalty for a mis-timed tackle in a 3–0 defeat. This would prove to be his only Premier League appearance for Sunderland, as his next two years at the club would be blighted by injury. His second and last appearance for the club came against Luton in the FA Cup on 28 August 2007. Anderson, making his full début, ruptured his ankle ligaments. After having reconstructive surgery, Anderson was ruled out for three months.

On 19 February 2008, Anderson joined Plymouth Argyle on a one month loan, which was later extended until the end of the 2007–08 season. He made his début for Plymouth away to Southampton on 19 February 2008, with Plymouth winning 2–0. Anderson went on to play in all 14 of Plymouth's final league games of the season during his spell at the club.

On 26 August 2008, Anderson joined Burnley on loan until the end of the 2008–09 season. He made his Burnley début on 30 August 2008 in a 0–0 draw against his former club Plymouth. Anderson played four consecutive league games for Burnley, but in his fifth game for the club, a League Cup tie against Fulham on 23 September 2008, he suffered a serious cruciate ligament injury that ruled him out for the rest of the season.

After spending 14 months out injured, Anderson finally made his comeback in a reserve game against Wigan Athletic on 1 December 2009. Anderson's contract was due to expire at the end of the 2009–10 season, and it was reported on 30 December 2009 that Sunderland were considering paying off the remainder of his contract, which would allow Anderson to sign on a free transfer for another club in the January transfer window. On 31 December, Anderson was reported to be in talks with Hibernian and an "unnamed Championship club", later revealed to be Derby County. However, Hibernian said they had no interest in signing Anderson, giving Derby County an advantage to win the race. Reports of Anderson leaving were confirmed on 14 January 2010, as Sunderland released him from his contract.

After leaving Sunderland, Anderson told MailSport in an interview: "It hasn't been a great couple of years and I've spent more time in the treatment room than the dressing-room. But I can't moan about what happened at Sunderland because it won't do me any good."

Another example of "do it up there" is Stokes - couldn;t score with a wad of £20's in the dirtiest bangkok themed whorehouse in England - scores for fun in Scotland and plays for the top club up there
