Bojan Miovski: Aberdeen’s North Macedonian Talisman

In the summer of 2022, Aberdeen signed striker Bojan Miovski from MTK Budapest for an undisclosed fee, and since arriving in Scotland the North Macedonian international has been sensational scoring 44 goals in 94 appearances. The Reds had a poor season as they finished seventh in the league and sacked Barry Robson and replaced him with Neil Warnock who left his interim role after only 34 days in charge.


Despite all that’s happened this season, Miovski managed to score 26 goals in a struggling Aberdeen side. The 24-year-old has two years left on his contract with the Dons but will be in hot demand this summer as clubs like Southampton and Bologna are interested in the striker, according to the Daily Mail


Long-life Aberdeen fan and host of the ABTV YouTube channel Ally Begg spoke exclusively to Breaking The Lines on how important Miovski has been for the Dandies: “He’s been a revelation. In his first season, he scored 18 goals in total, but I felt at times he was guilty of going missing in games or at times not doing enough. I like my strikers to be busy, to pull defenders all over the pitch, I felt that was missing.

“This season he’s been incredible, if it wasn’t for his goals I dread to think where we could have ended up. His work rate and all-round general play has improved significantly this season. To score 26 goals in what has been a disaster of a campaign is astonishing. I really hope Jimmy Thelin focuses all his energy on keeping him and building a team around him, he’s that good.”


Begg has seen many iconic strikers wear the red jersey and believes Miovski is up there with some of the best Aberdeen strikers in the club’s history and that they should push for a big fee if their star forward was to depart this summer. He continued: “I’ve been very lucky over the last 40+ years to have watched some great strikers play for Aberdeen.


“My first memory is of Joe Harper as his last game for the Dons so happened to be my first: Eric Black, Mark McGhee, Frank McDougall, Duncan Shearer, Adam Rooney, Charlie Nicholas and Hans Gillhaus spring to mind.

“Bojan is way up there and if he was to leave, I would hope the club push for 5 million plus, I just hope they don’t give him away like we have been so guilty of before.”



Miovski is one of the best number nines in the Scottish Premiership. He’s a clinical finisher, with excellent movement off the ball and is a technically gifted footballer who has proved to be a thorn in the side for every team in the league, especially against the Old Firm as he’s scored seven goals against them. It will be interesting to see where Miovski will end up next season but if it’s away from Aberdeen, Jimmy Thelin will no doubt find it difficult to replace a player of his quality.
