hall of fame Teddy Scott
Teddy Scott Teddy Scott is one of these unique individuals who dedicated an entire career to one club even beyond his playing days. Teddy became part of the bricks and mortar that held Pittodrie together. He dedicated his career to Aberdeen FC in a variety of roles as player, trainer, coach and kit manager during a 49-year spell at the club. Teddy's Room as it has been known for many years, packed as it is with pictures and artefacts, remains a shrine at Pittodrie that forms a significant part of the substantial Aberdeen Collection.

Teddy joined Aberdeen in 1954 immediately after he had starred for the successful Sunnybank Junior side that became the first Aberdeen club to win the Scottish Junior Cup that year when they beat Lochee Harp at Hampden. Teddy has seen off no less than 15 managers during his time with the Dons and Gordon Strachan once said that if Teddy went the club would have to find three men to replace him. Teddy is held in very high regard by so many of the players that have walked through the Pittodrie doors in the last century and he was awarded a deserved testimonial in January 1999. His good friend Alex Ferguson brought his star studded Manchester United side that was on the threshold of creating their own piece of history by winning their remarkable treble. Not to be outdone by that achievement Teddy can claim that his Testimonial provided the only defeat for the all-conquering United that year.

Teddy finally called it a day in 2003 to enjoy a well-deserved retirement. Renowned for bringing on the countless young players at Pittodrie his presence at Pittodrie is sorely missed but never forgotten.
