Aberdeen manager Mark McGhee is looking to have new recruits in place for this weekend's SPL kick-off against Celtic at Pittodrie.

The Dons manager fielded five trialists in yesterday's 1-0 victory against Hull City in Dean Windass's testimonial match at the KC Stadium in which Lee Miller scored with a header in in 39 minutes from Sone Aluko’s cross.

Defender Jerel Ifil, 27, who is available on a free transfer from Swindon, was a stand-out performer in defence and will be McGhee's priority, although centre back Zander Diamond is expected to return to training today.
