Northern Ireland international Niall McGinn has signed a contract extension at Aberdeen.

McGinn has committed to the Dons until the summer of 2017, while

Dublin’s Adam Rooney, who has found the net 17 times this season, has also agreed terms to remain at Pittodrie for another three-and-a-half years.

Forward Lawrence Shankland, 19, and defender Scott McKenna, 18, have also agreed two-and-a-half year deals.

Manager Derek McInnes said: “Adam and Niall are key players within the team while both Lawrence and Scott have the potential to develop into first team regulars in the not too distant future.

“I’ve always said that, while we’ve enjoyed a fruitful 2014, there is still a great deal of work to be done and securing players, who we want to be part of our journey, is vital if we want to achieve the success that everyone at the club craves.”

McGinn has been at Aberdeen since the summer of 2012.
