It was announced on social media that Frank McDougall passed away in hospital this morning following heart complications at the age of 65.

He played for the Dons between 1984 and 1986, and during his two seasons with the club he scored 44 goals and won all three domestic medals. 

His career was cut short at the age of 29 due to a back injury which forced him to retire.

Last year he was introduced into the AFC Hall of Fame. 

Aberdeen Football Club paid tribute to the former striker calling him an "AFC Legend" and "one of our greatest players ever".
