Aberdeen trials for Blackburn striker Rigters

Off contract Blackburn Rovers striker Maceo Rigters is training with Aberdeen.

Gordon Strachan tried to sign Rigters for Celtic in 2007 after the striker starred in Holland's successful European Under-21 Championship campaign, but Blackburn beat him to his signature.

However, Rigters failed to make an impact at Rovers following his move from NAC Breda, making just eight appearances over the course of his four-year contract.

The forward had a short spell on loan at Norwich and failed to score in a season-long loan at Barnsley.
