Jamie Langfield last night made a return to competitive football for Aberdeen five months after suffering brain seizures.

The 31-year old led out the Dons reserves in a friendly against Dundee United at St Andrews and was delighted to have made an incident-free comeback.

"I felt this day would never come, so it's great to be back," he told the Daily Record.

"When you've been through what I have you can handle most things."
"I was feeling a little bit nervous before the game, not really sure why.

"I am always like that before games anyway and it's good to feel the nerves again.

"Obviously it is only a closed-doors game against Dundee United at St Andrews, but it was a massive step for myself.

"Just to get a strip on and get back on a pitch was brilliant.

"When you put into context what happened to me during the summer, it is a serious thing.

"I'm really happy that I've had the chance to come back."
