Liverpool goalkeeper Ward eyeing SPL medal with Aberdeen

Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward is backing Aberdeen to win Scottish Premier League this season.

The 22-year-old played 21 league games for the Dons during his loan spell with the club earlier this term, and he will win a league medal if the Dons manage to triumph in the league this season.

"I really enjoyed myself up there and if they win it I get an SPL winner's medal - and that would not be too bad to take home," said Ward, who admits he is gunning for Simon Mignolet's starting spot at Anfield.

"The loan spell was something Liverpool and myself felt was needed as I had not played much first-team football coming into this season.

"It went really well and it was a bit bitter-sweet coming back as we were fighting for the league and I was playing week-in week-out.

"Getting called back is a bit of a different challenge than being a number one.

"You have to work harder in training and push the man ahead of you because you want his jersey."

Aberdeen currently trail Scottish Premiership league leaders Celtic by four points.
