Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes and his assistant Tony Docherty have signed two-year extensions with the club.

The pair committed their futures to the Pittodrie club until 2022 ahead of tonight’s  Europa League qualifier against RoPS Rovaniemi.

Both would have been out of contract at the end of the season.

McInnes said:  “I am delighted we have been able to agree new contracts with the club. The staff, players and I are committed to trying to deliver success and build upon all we have achieved in the past six years.

“With the opening of our new training campus at Kingsford on the horizon I am excited about the prospect of training professionally in a modern facility, something which should be in keeping with the ambitious club we are.

“It’s no secret that I love working for this club and I will strive to continue to try and create those special moments for our supporters. Working closely together I believe this is possible.

“Lastly, I would like to thank the Chairman and the Board who deserve great credit for their backing this summer as we look to re-build a competitive team.”
