The 20-year-old defender impressed in a month where he started all five league games for the Pittodrie side.

He told RedTV: "I was really surprised when I heard the news, as it is the first month I have been playing with the first team. It's good recognition for the club and again highlights the work that is being done with all the young players coming through."

He added: "I got my chance through the injuries that we have had. I feel that I have taken that chance."
