Aberdeen have named the second training pitch at their new Cormack Park training complex after club legend Willie Miller.
Voted the club’s greatest ever player in 2003, Miller becomes the second Dons favourite to receive the honour after stalwart Teddy Scott on Thursday.
Former centre-back Miller made 797 appearances for the Dons over a 17-year senior career at Pittodrie.
He was first named captain in 1975 by Ally MacLeod and continued in the role under Sir Alex Ferguson, for Aberdeen’s most successful period.
Miller won three league titles, four Scottish Cups, three League Cups, the European Cup Winners’ Cup and the European Super Cup in the red of Aberdeen.
He also won 65 caps for Scotland and went to the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. He retired from football in 1990 at the age of 35.
After his retirement, he managed the club for three seasons, between 1992 and 1995, and later served on the board of directors. He is now a pundit for BBC Scotland.
There are a series of further announcements planned about the complex ahead of its official opening next Thursday. Ferguson, the club’s greatest ever manager, will be in attendance.
Miller is part of the Dons’ Hall of Fame committee, which is working together with the club and its heritage trust to formulate ideas for what can be included at Cormack Park.
