Aberdeen and St Mirren ended their season with a scoreless Scottish Premier League draw at Pittodrie.

Darren Mackie, captaining the Dons in his final appearance for the club, missed two chances in the first half.

Gavin Rae's shot narrowly missed the target as the hosts continue to press after the interval.

St Mirren, whose best efforts came from Steven Thompson and Graham Carey, were stubborn in defence and the result ensured they finished above Aberdeen.

The Paisley side end the campaign eighth, two points ahead of the Dons, who finish ninth for the third successive season.

Mackie, who joined Aberdeen as a teenager in 1998, had an early chance but his shot was turned round the post by St Mirren keeper Craig Samson.

The hosts posed a threat at set pieces and a dangerous Jamie Masson delivery was flicked on by Mackie's head, forcing a clearance by Jim Goodwin to relieve the pressure on the visitors.

Buddies striker Thompson's angled drive forced a save from Jamie Langfield midway through the first half and St Mirren came close again when Carey curled a free-kick wide.

The ball fell to Mackie a few yards out moments later but the 30-year-old dragged his effort across the face of goal minutes before Masson tested Samson with a curling shot.

Thompson picked up a booking for dissent just after half-time, meaning he will be suspended for the first league game of next season.

A controlled, rising shot by Rae crept over the St Mirren crossbar as Aberdeen continued to force the issue.

Another player leaving Pittodrie this summer, Rory McArdle, came on for Josh Magennis and Kari Arnason, whose future is unclear, made way for Isaac Osbourne in Aberdeen's next change.

Ryan Fraser also came on for the Dons to replace Masson and the substitute's dangerous deliveries gave Samson some work to do.

At the other end, Thompson's downward shot was pushed out by Langfield.

And neither side was able to force a winning goal in the closing stages.
