Teenage midfielder Ethan Ross has signed a new two-year deal with Aberdeen.
Ross (17), who made his first-team debut in the Scottish Cup against Stenhousemuir, has penned an extension until 2021.
He has made five appearances in total for the senior team, including 25 minutes against Kilmarnock in the 1-0 win at Rugby Park last month.
Ross said: “I’m delighted to finally get it done and now I can focus on pushing on next season. My aim was to make my debut by the end of the season so to be sitting here after a few appearances under my belt already, it is brilliant. I just want to push on over the next two years as well.
“It has been nice to get some minutes in the league games as well. The Kilmarnock game last month at Rugby Park I was wanting to get on. The gaffer said to me he was looking for more of a defensive job, which wasn’t obviously the case in the few minutes I played against Stenhousemuir.
“The next two years are about getting the experience. Once I get that trust from the gaffer and the boys if I can go in and play more regularly in the first team and show what I can do then. That’s what I’m looking to do. Getting on the pitch more and more will help me in the long term.”
Ross, the club’s under-18 captain, is the younger brother of fellow Don Seb, who has made 22 appearances this season on loan at League 1 side Stenhousemuir
