Fraser On First Goal
Little Ryan Fraser speaks about his first goal as a professional player.
He missed out on the opportunity to score for Aberdeen, but on Saturday Ryan Fraser popped up for his first goal in senior football when he managed to poke home a delightful through ball from Tokelo Rantie.
Despite being on the wrong end of a 3-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers, Fraser is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "The goal takes a lot of pressure off me because I didn’t score for Aberdeen and when I began playing here, I started thinking ‘Will it ever come?’ I would have loved the right result over a goal because I would take a win over a goal any day. We didn’t get the result we wanted but it was nice to get a goal. I played 24 games at Aberdeen. I got opportunities but could never score, although I did supply assists. I have got a couple of assists here so far and to get the goal on Saturday was an unbelievable feeling. I was surprised how I got away from the defenders. They were both in front of me but I ran through after Tokelo had played a great ball. I just tapped it with my toe, past the goalkeeper, and I didn’t think it was going to get there. I thought, knowing my luck, it was going to stop on the line!"
