Is Darren Mackie’s time running out?

Darren Mackie could be coming towards the end of his Aberdeen career.

The club’s longest serving player faces an uncertain future after manager Craig Brown admitted he has yet to decide if the 30 year-old is to be offered a new contract.

Mackie last played for Aberdeen on wednesday 28th December which put him on 355 appearances for the dons.

Mackie now only needs another 7 appearances to make it into the top 10 of all time appearances for Aberdeen.

A testimonial against Villareal last year honoured Darren for his 14 years of service to Aberdeen.

Mackie has scored some very vital goals for Aberdeen.  In 2007 he scored a vital goal against Dnipro to secure Aberdeen into the group stages of the UEFA Cup.  That goal was tagged the 1 million point goal.  Darren also scored the winner at parkhead against Celtic in 2008 in the Scottish Cup to put Aberdeen through.

Although Willie Miller’s 797 appearances will proably never be matched, Mackie still feels he has a lot to give for Aberdeen.
