Dons boss revels in 'best' night
Dons manager Jimmy Calderwood celebrates at the final whistle
Calderwood described his side's performance as wonderful
Aberdeen's Jimmy Calderwood described the 4-0 victory over Copenhagen as the best night of his football career.

"It really was a great performance from the lads," he said of the Uefa Cup win. "We know they are capable of it, which is why we get so angry on Saturdays.

"But it was a wonderful night. It's wonderful, something to look forward to, but all credit to the lads.

"It doesn't matter who you get now, it gives you something to look forward to in February."

Finishing third in Group B means Aberdeen will be drawn on Friday against either Everton, Villarreal, Hamburg, Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich, Getafe and Bordeaux.

The Dons' victory was built on two early second-half goals from Jamie Smith.

It's a massive achievement for the club. It's great for the city and the fans

But the winger, who had returned to the side following injury, modestly paid tribute to his colleagues.

"A lot of credit must go to my team-mates," he said.

"Defensively, we were brilliant. I got two goals, but most of the credit must go to them.

"We created a few chances in the first half and we were a bit disappointed at half-time.

"But I don't think they created too many chances in the 90 minutes.

"It's a massive achievement for the club. It's great for the city and the fans. It's just great to be part of."

Goalkeeper Jamie Langfield echoed Smith's sentiments, saying: "It is absolutely brilliant. We were always in the game.

"All credit to the boys, I thought defensively we had to take a lot of credit.

"Hopefully we can take it on in the next leg."
