Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack has discloses that although it is not easy to sign players in the January transfer window he and the club are willing to push as hard as they can to bring players to the club.

Cormack wants to try and take advantage of what could be a chance to finish second in the Premiership. Celtic’s struggles this season will have given Hibernian and Aberdeen hope that they can vault over the current Scottish champions into second place in the Premiership table.

Cormack has admitted that the thought of finishing second in the league has crossed his mind.


“The league is kind of open”

“Absolutely, and maybe for the first time in three years the league is kind of open to that opportunity” he said (Daily Record).

“We will go into the transfer windows looking at ins and outs but January is always a difficult window, but we will look at what we can get to push as hard as we can push, as a club” Cormack explained, regarding the January transfer window.

Will be tough due to other team’s financial advantages

However, Cormack believes that Aberdeen’s best chance of success in years to come probably in a cup competition, due to the financial advantage Celtic and Rangers have. However, that won’t stop Aberdeen from trying as hard as they can in the league.

“It is tough, and it is a bit like Celtic and Rangers starting at the 70 metre line in a 100 metre sprint every season. In many ways our best chance is to win a cup. Derek and everybody at the club is desperate to do that. Make no mistake though we also want to do our utmost in the league” he said.
