US Citizen visiting Copenhagen after 90 days in Schengen

I will have been in the Schengen zone 90 days on 12/26, and am considering visiting Copenhagen for a week afterwards. I've read on the Danish Immigration site that US citizens can visit Denmark for a 90 day period of time after their 90 days are up in the Schengen. I will be flying from Spain, so I don't believe I'll get a passport stamp upon arrival. I need to know if I will be able to enter Denmark after 90 days in the Schengen and do I need to apply for a visa or get an entry stamp so that when I leave Denmark to travel to the UK I don't get in trouble with immigration?

Have any US citizens here done something similar? Below is the text from the Danish Immigration site:

"Citizens of certain countries are entitled to stay in Denmark for 90 days, regardless of stays in other Schengen countries

Citizens of Australia, Canada, Chile, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and the US can freely enter and stay in Denmark for up to 90 days every six months, regardless of whether they have stayed in another Schengen country prior to entry into Denmark. The 90 days are counted from the first entry into Denmark or another Nordic country, within the six month period. If you have previously spent time in Denmark or another Nordic country within the previous six months, that time will be deducted from the 90-day maximum. "

Thanks for replying!

I have done same before. Is not a problem. Just make sure you get entry stamp to validate your time in country. Copenhagen immigration has always been helpful in transit concerns such as yours.
