Welcome Back Miko Virtanen
Tervetuloa takaisin (Welcome Back) Miko Virtanen!
Everyone at Arbroath FC are absolutely ecstatic to announce that last year’s Young Player of the Year Miko Virtanen is rejoining the club on loan from Aberdeen.
Miko will rejoin his Arbroath teammates from last season as he rejoins our team for the new Championship season.
Miko’s performances last season for Arbroath caught the eye of everyone who watched him play and in turn Arbroath have fought off several clubs who were desperate to secure Miko on loan.
Manager Dick Campbell couldn’t be happier to have Miko back with us and we know all our players are thrilled to have him return.
Miko made his Arbroath debut against Dundee United at Tannadice coming on in the 63rd minute before making his first start for the club against Dundee at Den’s Park on the 5th September.
Needless to say it didn’t take long for the Arbroath faithful to instantly take Miko in as his endless running and love of a tackle combined with his grit and determination seen him become a fan favourite.
Only an international match for the Finnish U21 side kept Miko from having a constant run in the team as he made 18 starts in the league, with a further 2 from the bench and 3 starts in the William Hill Scottish Cup.
Miko was a gentleman off the park and a pleasure to be around and we are delighted we get to spend time with him again.
We would like to thank Derek McInnes and everyone at Aberdeen FC for again allowing Miko to return to Gayfield.
Welcome back Miko!
C’mon the Lichties!
