Aberdeen finally ended their ten-game winless run yesterday, sinking Hibs 1-0 at Pittodrie to ease the pressure on Stephen Glass – and the Dons boss was pleased his players showed the bottle to answer their critics.
Christian Ramirez scored the only goal of the game to condemn Hibs to a third straight defeat and Glass was given firm support earlier in the week when Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack appeared on radio.
The Aberdeen manager now wants to prove the Dons chairman right – as well as proving to his family that returning to Scotland from America was the correct decision.
“You saw a group that has been accused of not being resilient but you couldn’t accuse them of that today,” Glass said.
“I believe in my work. When we lose I believe in my work. I believe in my staff and the players. Nothing changes that and we don’t get carried away when we win a game.
“We showed something which people accused us of not having which is nice but we move on and go to Ibrox and try and do the same thing and then come back for a big game against Hearts at home.
“The aim is to try and prove people right that support you. Dave was very vocal in his support during the week on behalf of himself and the board but he fronted it up.
“I want to prove the people right that put me here. I want to prove my family right that I made the right choice to come back here.”
The Dons face Rangers in midweek in another massive test for Glass and his side and they’ll be hoping they can continue where they left off against Hibs and pick up a second win in succession.
