Derby County defender Max Lowe may have played a small role in Craig Bryson’s move to Aberdeen, Herald Scotland report.
Bryson departed Derby this summer to move back to Scotland with Aberdeen after eight years at Pride Park.
The Scotland international joined the Rams in 2011 from Kilmarnock and became a popular figure at the club. However, with his contract due for expiration this summer, Bryson has opted to move on.
His choice to join Aberdeen was backed up by Derby’s Max Lowe. The young left-back spent the best part of last season on loan at Pittodrie, and Bryson suggests he enjoyed his time at the club.
I spoke to Max when he was coming to Aberdeen and told him to go up to Scotland at a big club and if you play well then you never know what is going to happen. When I was coming, I just asked him about the boys and the manager and what it was like being up there. Max can’t speak highly enough of Aberdeen.
Craig Bryson is joining one of Scotland’s current best clubs:
Lowe had two spells on loan at Aberdeen last season after initially starting the 2018/19 as Derby’s number one left-back.
The Rams academy graduate struggled with the rigors of Championship football. However, up at Pittodrie, he was a big success at Aberdeen and was named the Players’ Player of the Year.
Bryson is joining one of Scotland’s current best clubs. Aberdeen finished fourth last season in the Scottish Premiership, while they reached the Scottish League Cup final.
The Dons will feature in the Europa League next season, entering the tournament in the qualifying rounds. For Bryson, it will be a new experience and one he will surely relish.
