Aberdeen legend Duncan Shearer has pleaded for former Pittodrie teammate Stephen Glass to be given more time in the Dons’ hot seat – and insists the players need to play their part in avoiding chairman Dave Cormack “pulling the trigger too early.”

The Dons have gone ten games without a win, losing their last five, and the Red Army made their feelings clear at the end of the weekend loss to Dundee at Dens Park.

That’s led to Shearer calling on the Aberdeen hierarchy to show faith in Glass and give him another six games to prove he can turn things around and get the Dons heading in the right direction.

“I feel for Stephen Glass. He’s an ex-team-mate and I know how nice a guy he is. When you look at the commitment of moving his family back from America – I don’t want Dave Cormack to pull the trigger too early,” Shearer said [P&J]

“I’d like to see at least another half-a-dozen games to see what happens. Stephen is under no illusions that it’s a results-driven business. He knows how it works.

“All I would say is give the boy a chance. I know from people inside the stadium that he’s working really hard and that should buy him more time.


These players are not bad players, but I think a few need to take a look in the mirror. It has to come down to them making their choices on the park, and defensively they’re making the wrong choices and offensively they’re making the wrong choices. Something has to improve at both ends of the park.

It’s not like they’re drawing a lot of games or not scoring goals. They’re getting beat in games, so it has to change – and pretty soon.
