Aberdeen manager Craig Brown has rejected reports that young left-back Clark Robertson has turned down a contract extension.

"Well, I've not spoken to him about that," said Brown.

"During the week, he and his agent met with us and we spoke about a contract, but there's been no indication that he was going to turn it down.

"Obviously, we hope he will stay. He's a fine young full-back."

Brown, meanwhile, thought a 3-0 defeat by Hearts was harsh on his side.

"I think it was a fairly even game because our goalkeeper had not a save in the game to make, yet he lost three goals," he said.

"Admittedly, neither did Jamie MacDonald in goal for Hearts, so there was not much in the play, I'm quite sure."
