New Deal For Langfield
Published : 24 Apr 2012 07:25:23
Jamie Langfield returned to the fray on behalf of Aberdeen on Saturday and will be back for next season.
Goalkeeper Jamie Langfield has been offered a new contract by Aberdeen. He made his competitive return to the first team on Saturday in the 2-0 win over Inverness, 11 months after suffering a brain seizure at home. Langfield had played while out on loan with Forfar with Wales international Jason Brown taking on the gloves for the Dons. He was in goal for the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final loss to Hibsn, but was replaced for the Caley Thistle game. Manager Craig Brown said: "Jamie has been offered a new deal and a good contract, I think. He loves Aberdeen Football Club and I think his concern was that he was not going to be in contention for the number one goalkeeping spot but here we are; he plays, we have a clean sheet and he plays exceptionally well so he is right in contention for being number one. I want to emphasise (Jason) Brown wasn't dropped because of the semi-final and he knew even had he kept a clean sheet in the semi-final Jamie Langfield would be playing. It gives us great food for thought and also gives competition for the number one spot which every club would be pleased about." Meanwhile, a knee injury looks to have called time on striker Rory Fallon's season. The New Zealand international was injured in the win at Inverness on Saturday. The former Scotland manager said: "We think the season could be over for Rory Fallon. Rory picked up a knee injury. It is too early to say at this stage how bad the injury is, he will need to have a scan."
