The Los Angeles native has played for three clubs in MLS, beginning with Minnesota United FC from 2017-2018. The forward was traded to LAFC midway through the 2018 season. Ramirez scored 35 goals in MLS and made his 100th league appearance earlier this year in Houston’s 2-1 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on April 16.

Aberdeen competes in the Scottish Premier League and finished fourth in the 2020-2021 regular season. Aberdeen has won the league title four times and finished as the second-best team in Scotland on 17 occasions.
