Former Oldham striker Adam Rooney has joined Scottish Premier League side Aberdeen on a two-and-a-half-year deal, reports BBC Sport.

The 25-year-old played Scottish football for Inverness Caledonian Thistle between 2008 and 2011 where he scored more than 50 times for the side before joining Championship side Birmingham and scoring the winning goal in their Europa League game against NK Maribor, but The Blues failed to progress out of the group stages of the competition.

Rooney then made 29 appearances and scored nine goals whilst on loan at Swindon the following season but after The Robins failed to sign the youngster at the end of the 2012/13 campaign, the Irishman joined Oldham Athletic where he scored four goals in 24 appearances.

Rooney now joins up with former Inverness team-mate Jonny Hayes, whom he linked up with in his first few seasons in Scotland. Oldham released the following statement on their website: "The striker had 18 months left on his contract at Boundary Park, but the mutual agreement allows him a return to Scotland with Aberdeen.

"The 25-year-old had also been a target for his former Inverness boss, Terry Butcher, now at Hibernian, but the Easter Road outfit weren't able to fund a move."
