DEREK McINNES believes there is no need for Gary Mackay-Steven to feel disheartened at having failed to make it at Celtic.
The Aberdeen boss swooped for the winger last week to end his two-and-a-half years at the champions.
The 26-year-old former Scotland international made only five starts for Brendan Rodgers’ side during their historic treble-winning campaign.
McInnes said: “It hasn’t worked out for him at Celtic and I don’t think there is any disgrace in that given the level of players who are ahead of him.
“But I think he comes here with a point to prove.
“He also comes here eager to getting back to playing regularly and, hopefully, we can provide him with that platform.
“Gary is another player who comes in to add to the good players we have already got.
“We are very specific with our signings. We have now got the wide player we were so keen on.
“A brilliant addition to the squad and I’m really looking forward to seeing him in that strip.”
