Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass has confessed he can “totally understand” calls for the Dons hierarchy to sack him after yesterday’s defeat by Dundee made it 10 without a win for the Pittodrie side.

The Red Army made their feelings known at the end of the 2-1 defeat by James McPake’s side as Dundee recorded their first win of the season thanks to goals from Leigh Griffiths and Luke McCowan.

Christian Ramirez pulled one back for Glass’ side but it wasn’t enough as the Dons boss admitted the “proof will be in the pudding” after being backed by the Dons board to make ambitious signings like Ramirez and Scott Brown over the summer.

“I totally understand it,” Glass admitted after the final whistle.

“I can see why there might not be a bit of belief there in us as a staff and that group of players. That group of players are capable of winning football matches. We’ve been severely, severely punished with the opportunities we’ve given up.

“But, again, the reality of managing football clubs like this, the reality of playing for football clubs like this, you don’t last very long if you can’t win games. We look forward to Hibs next week and see where that gets us.

“We’ve been backed so far (by Cormack). Results like this, you don’t know what is going to happen. The proof will be in the pudding.”

With Aberdeen fans wanting a change, some have been touting former Hamilton and Preston manager Alex Neil as their preferred pick.

Neil left Deepdale in March after four years at Preston and has previously said he would be open to a return to Scotland to manage.

Whether the Dons will look to replace Glass soon is anyone’s guess but his comments suggest it won’t come as much of a surprise to the Aberdeen boss if they do.

Here are some of the comments from the Red Army backing Alex Neil to take over at Aberdeen:
