FORMER Aberdeen defender Shay Logan has renewed his war of words with Scott Brown after the new Dons signing was pictured wearing next season's kit.

The Pittodrie club shared an image of the former Celtic midfielder in next season's shirt on Twitter as they encouraged supporters to buy their own replica kits.

Logan is no stranger to poking fun at Hoops fans on social media - it was only last week that the Hearts full-back poked fun at the Premiership runners-up's lengthy pursuit of a new manager - and the post from his former club proved too great for the 33-year-old to resist.

Under the picture of Brown in the Dons kit, Logan commented: "What's the saying you can't polish a t***," followed by emojis.

Brown and Logan's relationship has been tense in the past. The then Celtic captain backed his team-mate Aleksandr Tonev when the Aberdeen player accused the Bulgarian of racially abusing him in 2014, with Tonez receiving a seven-game suspension.

But Logan has since insisted that there is no bad blood between him and Brown over the incident.

He explained: "It's not that we didn't get on - he played for Celtic, I played for Aberdeen, there was rivalry on the pitch. He wanted to win, I wanted to win.

"In terms of that, I've had fights like that with people on the pitch for the last eight years.

"I've got no personal vendetta against Scott Brown. I don't think he's got one against me.

"But I only judge people off what I've seen and come across. We've had a little bit of argy bargy on the pitch, and for me that's where it stays.

"Anything else to do with other stuff, where people might be saying about him backing Tonev with all the racism stuff, I've left all of that in the past.

"It's so far gone that I only ever think about it if someone brings it up."
