Dutch striker Rigters made only eight appearances for Blackburn

Aberdeen have taken former Blackburn Rovers striker Maceo Rigters on trial.

The 27-year-old former Netherlands Under-21 international came through the ranks at Ajax before making his first-team breakthrough at Heerenveen.

Celtic and Newcastle United were beaten to Rigters' signature in 2007, when he was sold to Blackburn by Breda.

However, he only made eight appearances for Rovers and had loan spells at Norwich, Barnsley and Willem II before his release this summer.
