Robson relaxed over new deal

Barry Robson has no plans to hang up his boots and is confident a new deal can be agreed to keep him at Aberdeen.

The 35-year-old's contract expires at the end of the season but boss Derek McInnes has previously made it clear that he wants the midfielder to stay.

And Robson has no worries about sorting out an extension after playing a major role at Pittodrie this season.

"I still feel fit and fresh and I've played around 25 games and that was with an injury I had at the start of the season," Robson said in the Daily Record.

"I still get about the pitch and feel I can still contribute. So why not keep going?

"It's a great club to be at. We've won a cup, there's excitement around the place. We have a good management team and great players.

"I'm enjoying being along for the ride and I'd like to keep going.

"We have brought some success to the club but we need to bring more and I am focusing on trying to achieve that."

Robson has enjoyed working under McInnes since joining Aberdeen last summer, having had a short stint with Sheffield United at the end of last season.

He added: "Hopefully we can sort something out. I'd love to stay and I'm sure the manager would like me to stay but there's plenty of time for that.

"It won't be hard to sort out, We've had a discussion about it. He'll tell me what I'm getting and I'll sign it. I don't have an agent.

"It's not about money. I love playing under the manager and (assistant boss) Tony Docherty. I am massively impressed with them and I'm more than willing to stay."
