Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass has accused Ryan Hedges’ agent of ‘driving an agenda’ to get the player out of Pittodrie ahead of his move to Blackburn Rovers.

The Welshman completed his move to Ewood Park ahead of the deadline with his contract up in the summer and Glass conceded it was better the winger moved on.

While the Pittodrie boss admits he would have liked another striker in his ranks before the transfer window closed, he’s happy enough with where his squad are going into the final months of the campaign.

“We know we would have liked to get another centre forward in but we are pleased with what we did and keep a hold of what we have,” Glass said.

“The only one who was starting games for us was Ryan Hedges, who was an unhappy player with an agent driving an agenda to get out of the club.

“It is best for the club to let him go.

“We haven’t suffered too badly although we would have liked to add another centre forward.”

New signings Vicente Besuijen and Adam Montgomery made their debuts for the Dons last night in the 1-1 draw with Ross County while Dante Polvara is sidelined in the short term ahead of a pending operation.
