Profile:
Full name: Tsanko Nikolaev Tsvetanov

Signed by Roy Aitken for about 500,000. Popular speculation was that his main purpose was to provide company for Ilian Kiriakov, but in his first Pittodrie season he did quite well. Transferred to Germany in 1998 at a substantial transfer loss to the club.
