Bristol City a better standard says ex-Aberdeen skipper Foster

Recently-departed Aberdeen captain Ricky Foster admits that he left the club to play at a higher standard.

The 26-year old left Pittodrie Stadium for Championship club Bristol City earlier this month and says the main reason was to test himself in a better quality of competition.

"It was hard leaving Aberdeen but it was a move I definitely had to make," he said.

"You always want to better yourself and a step up from the SPL is definitely the Championship.

"In the SPL you tend to know the guy you're up against and they know what you're going to try to do - a lot of the games are just a stalemate.

"This is a new challenge. There are a lot of good teams and players. I'll find it difficult but I'm sure I can cope.

"It wasn't something I was thinking about but when the option came up I spoke to a few people and the manager here at City.

"The club seems to be moving in the right direction so I just felt it was the right time to move. It was an easy decision."
