Rogers, who celebrates his 22nd birthday this week, has signed a two-year deal along with 19-year-old centre-back Scott McKenna. Rogers has impressed on loan spells with Airdrie, Dumbarton and the Bairns and is aiming to make his Dons debut next term.

He told Aberdeen’s official website: “The manager rang me to say he was going to offer me a new deal and I was very keen to sign it. When we spoke he said all the right things and really made me feel part of his plans for the future.

“I feel I am now ready to come back and challenge for the number one spot. Hopefully I can come back in pre-season and produce the goods. But before then I have some big games ahead with Falkirk.”
