Richard Foster has said the Aberdeen assistant manager role is one above Celtic captain Scott Brown at the moment.

The midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and has a decision to make on his future. Stephen Glass is heavily linked with becoming the new Aberdeen manager and has approached the Celtic captain and his former Hibs teammate about becoming his assistant boss, if appointed Dons gaffer.

Former Aberdeen defender Foster thinks it’s too much for the Celtic skipper, although the appointment of the Atalanta United reserve manager would be shrewd (BBC): “Scott Brown and I are the same age. I don’t know him that well.

“I know how much he wants to win and how successful he has been as a player, but at the moment we are the same age with relatively similar coaching experience, and I don’t think I would be ready to be assistant manager at a club like Aberdeen.


“It’s too big a job. When you couple that up with Stephen Glass, I think Stephen Glass on it’s own is a good way to go, you’re giving a young manager a chance in the game. It’s a big club and a big chance. You need to give him time and you need to bring in someone with him with experience.

“I don’t think going in there with an inexperienced manager and an inexperienced assistant is the way to go.”
