He said: “I think everyone recognises what Derek has achieved during his time at the club and I am delighted he has agreed to extend his time at Pittodrie, making him our longest serving manager since Sir Alex Ferguson.

“The Board and I strongly believe that with Derek leading this club we have a real platform for further success, and I am confident the team he has rebuilt over the summer will continue to see us competing for trophies, keeping the pressure at the top of the league, and hopefully a strong run in Europe.

“Derek also played a critical role in enabling us to secure consent for Kingsford and it will be a real milestone for the club to see him take his first training session in our first owned and dedicated training facility in our 116-year history.

“I look forward to continuing our work together as we strive to deliver success for our great club.”
