Willie Miller says that Aberdeen should have ‘alarm bells’ ringing following a disappointing defeat to Rangers.

The Dons were thrashed 5-0 by their Glasgow rivals as Derek McInnes’ side offered very little in Govan. It followed on from a dismal League Cup exit to Hearts a few days previous.

Club legend Miller has said that the result just isn’t good enough and that it should be the start of accepting things ‘are not right’ at Pittodrie.

He told the Daily Record (page 46, 1/10/19): “Alarm bells are now ringing after the loss at Rangers and they must quickly find out how to fix it.

“Not only did they exit the League Cup at Hearts after being so close to reaching the semi-finals, they’ve suffered a heavy defeat in Glasgow.

“Those results came on the back of scraping past Livingston 2-0. There has to be acceptance some things are not right.”

Aberdeen fans are hungry for success

Against Rangers, Aberdeen were nothing short of tragic. They were doomed from the beginning of the match, as McInnes went with defensive tactics that were easily picked apart by Rangers.

They’ve won just three out of seven in the league so far and are out of the League Cup before Hampden beckoned. Some fans are quite simply bored and hungry for success, having last seen their side lift a trophy back in 2014.

Miller seems to think acceptance that not all things at Aberdeen are rosy is the way forward and he won’t be the only one who feels that way.
