Aberdeen's Byrne amazed by Atletico Madrid quality

Aberdeen defender Richie Byrne admits he was stunned by the quality of Atletico Madrid's play in Thursday night's 2-0 UEFA Cup defeat in Spain.

"It's their movement, it's amazing," he said. "They really are sharp. They wait and wait and then they're gone. They like to draw you in and it's slow, slow, quick. You can see them and you know what they are going to do. Playing against them was really hard.

"Maxi looks classy, he's good on the ball. He's very clever, because he can pass as well and he can score, he has the lot. Aguero is really good as well."
