Aberdeen winger Vicente Besuijen has joined Dutch second-tier side Emmen on loan for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old has not started a game under Barry Robson and last played for the Dons in their shock Scottish Cup defeat by Darvel 12 months ago.

Besuijen, a former Netherlands youth international, is under contract at Pittodrie until 2026.

Meanwhile, Aberdeen missed the chance to move into the Scottish Premiership top six last night when they faced off against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park.

The match in Perth was marred with VAR controversy with the Dons taking the lead through a controversial penalty award.

Saints equalised through debutant David Keltjens and the match ended up finishing 1-1.

Aberdeen manager Barry Robson felt his side paid the price for poor game management.

“It was disappointing, when you are 1-0 up with 15 minutes to go, you are hoping to go on and win the game,” said Robson, who lost Rubezic late on to a knee injury which will require a scan.

“When the opposition is coming at you and they will come at you, you have to be calm and use your experience. You get your distances right, stop crosses coming into the box and when the ball does come in the box, you win your headers.

“We never did that well enough in the last 15 minutes.”
