Aberdeen Football Club legend Teddy Scott has died at the age of 83.

He joined the Dons as a player in the 1950s and served the club for 50 years as a coach and kit man.

Mr Scott was a key member of Sir Alex Ferguson's backroom team in the club's glory years, and served under more than a dozen managers.

He received a testimonial against Manchester United in 1999 before retiring due to ill health nine years ago.
