Declan Gallagher hopes to establish a strong partnership with Andy Considine at Aberdeen next season.
The Blantyre man was officially introduced as Dons player yesterday after his move north from Motherwell was announced towards the end of last season.
Gallagher played alongside Aberdeen legend Considine for Scotland as they kept a clean sheet against Czech Republic in a 1-0 Nations League win in October.
The pair also kept a clean sheet together in the 1-0 win over Slovakia at Hampden during the same international break.
Neither player featured in Steve Clarke’s side as Scotland fell to a 2-0 defeat to the Czech’s in their opening game of EURO 2020 and Gallagher joked about their impressive partnership.
He told RedTV: “We actually just spoke about that in the gym. I asked him what the score was when we last played Czech Republic?
“I think we beat them 1-0 and kept a clean sheet but I didn’t want to say too much about that.
“But we did well when we played for Scotland together and hopefully we can continue that here.”
Gallagher was a huge figure at Motherwell during a successful two-year spell.
The 30-year-old defender made his Scotland debut whilst at Fir Park and he was made captain by former boss Stephen Robinson for the 2020/21 season.
The centre-back scored a famous last-minute winner against Ross County in December 2019 in front of a jubilant travelling support and he thanked them, and ‘amazing’ ‘Well staff, in a farewell message.
Gallagher tweeted: “Also wanna say a thank you to any remaining Motherwell FC fans that still like me.
“Had a great two years at the club met amazing people and wish use all the the best. Big shout out to Laura Brannan for making me a goodbye video.”
