Profile:
An astute signing by Craig Brown, Northern Ireland International Niall brought the Dons a supply of goals, many of them spectacular, that made him an invaluable member of the Club. In season 2012-2013 he became the first Aberdeen player in many years to break the 20 goals in a season barrier. He was a key regular in the Dons' teams fielded by Derek McInnes.
Niall left Pittodrie at the end of season 2016-17 and signed for South Korean club Gwangju, but left them by mutual agreement in the autumn of 2017 and ultimately signed up for a return to Pittodrie effective 1st January 2018.
