Profile:
One of Mark McGhee's most successful signings, Vernon brought a goal threat to the Dons that had been missing for some time. Because of injury problems to the squad in season 2012-13, Scott was regularly asked to play in midfield rather than up front, thus losing his goalscoring edge but doing his best for the team in difficult circumstances. Was part of the League Cup winning team in 2014, having played a significant part in the run to the final.
