Ross McCrorie has spoken out after being linked with a move to Bristol City

Ross McCrorie is focusing on Aberdeen amid links of a summer transfer move Bristol City.

News broke from BBC Scotland on Sunday that the Robins had been in discussions with the Scottish Premiership club about a £2m deal for the 25-year-old. He had just delivered a sublime performance in a 1-0 win over Rangers for the Dons when links came about.

Reports in Scotland claim that City’s technical director Brian Tinnion was at Pittodrie to watch over the former Portsmouth loanee. It is said that a deal of between £1.8m and £2m has been discussed with McCrorie’s club Rangers set to get a sell-on-clause.

City had hoped to steal a march on other EFL Championship clubs tracking McCrorie but for the time being, their rumoured transfer target is focusing on the task in hand.

"I am just focusing on Aberdeen right now," he said to the Scotsman.

“I still have three years left on my contract at Aberdeen. I just signed a new one last year and days like Sunday are terrific. I really enjoyed it.

"I don’t really take too much notice or interest in that.

"I think that if we are doing well at Aberdeen we have plenty of boys attracting interest and it just goes to show you how well we are doing this season."

Aberdeen receive their fixtures for the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign this afternoon and then the proposed transfer can be resumed. Scotland’s season will finish on May 27 or May 28, meanwhile City’s is on Monday, May 8 at QPR.

Nigel Pearson has a preference of securing transfer deals early with all four of this seasons summer signings arriving before the start of their league campaign. McCrorie is predominantly a defensive midfielder but has scored several goals this year which Pearson is looking for in his players.

McCrorie added: “I am not talking about me leaving.

"I am an Aberdeen player and I am proud to be an Aberdeen player, it’s days like today it is a real honour, especially when I got to captain the side.

"When I look at this team, it is excellent, the best team I have had at Aberdeen and I am enjoying every minute, I am loving it here."
