McGinn named SPL player of the month

Aberdeen and NI star Niall McGinn is named SPL player of the month for October.

And the Pittodrie side celebrated a clean sweep of the awards with Craig Brown and Ryan Fraser picking up the manager and young player prizes.

The Dons went last month unbeaten, with victories against Kilmarnock and Dundee and a draw with Dundee United.

McGinn in particular had a month to savour, scoring in each of his side's SPL matches.

The former Celtic forward is currently on a streak of six goals in six league games.
