New players have to earn the right to replace stalwarts in the side

Nicky Weaver knows he will have to earn his place ahead of Jamie Langfield in the Aberdeen goal. The former England U21 'keeper signed a six-month deal with the Dons on Monday after being released by Sheffield Wednesday. Weaver is keen to get some game-time under his belt for his new club but he knows he will have to work hard to replace Langfield.

Weaver said: "I want to play but I'm sure Jamie will have something to say about that. He's been the number one here for quite some time and he's obviously a very able keeper. I think he played just about every game last year. I'm under no illusions. I don't feel as though I'm going to walk straight into the team. All I can do is my best in training. If and when I get an opportunity, it's up to me to take it."
