Aberdeen sign former Celtic forward Niall McGinn
Aberdeen have bolstered their squad with the signing of former Celtic forward Niall McGinn.
The 24-year-old Northern Ireland international made 36 appearances for Celtic before being loaned to League One side Brentford last season.
He has agreed a two-year deal at Pittodrie and Dons boss Craig Brown intends to use McGinn as a striker.
McGinn is Brown's second signing of the summer after the capture of Jonny Hayes from Inverness Caley Thistle.
"Aberdeen is a massive club and I'm really looking forward to be back playing in Scotland," he said.
"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Brentford last season and, playing week-in-week-out has, I believe, made me a better player.
"Craig Brown has big plans for the club and I definitely want to be a part of that."
During his spell at Brentford, McGinn scored five goals in 27 league games for the club.
McGinn impressed with Derry City before moving to Celtic in 2009.
