Derby County's out-on-loan defender Max Lowe has been named Aberdeen’s Players’ Player of the Year at their End of Season Awards night.

The full back, 22, has enjoyed a progressive campaign at Pittodrie, making 41 appearances so far for Derek McInnes’s side over two spells.

Lowe started the season at Pride Park before joining the Dons on loan in August and made 18 appearances, but returned to the Rams in January.

He played twice for the Rams before returning to Aberdeen on loan until the end of the season.

He has netted three goals over his two spells and has impressed north of the border with his performances and attitude.

Speaking about receiving the award, Lowe said: “Thank you to all the boys that voted for me. It was difficult for me coming in at the start of the season and it took me a while to get myself going, but the lads have been first class with me.

“I can only thank all of them and the gaffer and I’ve really enjoyed my time up here.

“It didn’t take me a long time to feel part of the group. The lads were great with me and have been all season. It’s the best dressing room I’ve been a part of and that’s why the group’s so special.”
