Alan Burrows has made it clear that Aberdeen are ready to take Rangers to a tribunal over Connor Barron's transfer to ensure they receive what they consider fair value for the player.

The Scotland Under-21 international moved to the Light Blues on a free transfer earlier this month, with Rangers' offer of around £500,000 falling short of Aberdeen's valuation.

While discussions between the two clubs continue, Aberdeen's chief executive has stated their willingness to involve the Scottish Professional Football League tribunal if necessary.

Burrows told the Daily Record: "If there isn't agreement between the two clubs then we are fully prepared to go to a tribunal. It is our job to get the best value for any player and we will try and do that with Connor Barron.

"Ideally, in all walks of life, we would like to avoid situations where you have to go to tribunals but if we have to we will."

Although Aberdeen could have expected about £500,000 in training compensation had Barron transferred outside Scotland, they anticipate a tribunal may award them more, along with a potential sell-on clause.
