Shrewsbury Town complete the signing of former Aberdeen striker Scott Vernon on a two-year deal.

Shrewsbury Town have signed former Aberdeen striker Scott Vernon on a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old left the Scottish club at the end of last season after seeing his contract come to an end.

"Scott is a very good player and a clever striker who I believe will fit in perfectly to what we are doing," Shrews boss Micky Mellon told the club's official website.

"He's got great experience and I am absolutely delighted to have Scott on board. It's a deal we know that we have done for a few weeks now but with Scott being on holiday we had to wait until now."

Vernon scored nine goals in 34 appearances for Aberdeen last season.
