Ex-Celtic, Middlesbrough midfielder Robson - I feel 25 at Aberdeen

Veteran midfielder Barry Robson may be 35 but he says he feels ten younger with Aberdeen.

The former Inverness, Dundee United, Celtic, Middlesbrough, Vancouver Whitecaps and Sheffield United man signed a one-year deal with the Dons this past summer put feels he could keep going for the Pittodrie club.

Robson, who helped Aberdeen beat the Hoops in the Scottish Cup fifth round, told the Daily Record that he could possibly play on for another couple of seasons.

"I'm 35 but I feel like I'm 25," said Robson. "Seriously, I still feel good.

"I've looked after myself so hopefully I can keep going. I'll see where this season takes me, then maybe I can go another year or even two after that. You never know, it's up to me to produce on the park.

"I haven't had time to speak to the manager (Derek McInnes) about a contract yet, we've had too many games.

"It's been really hectic and that's more important than my own situation at the moment, to try and make sure we keep winning game."
