It has been reported that Aberdeen are set to announce Atlanta United reserve team manager Stephen Glass as their new boss today, with Celtic captain Scott Brown favourite to become his assistant (Sky Sports).

Glass will take over as manager from Derek McInnes after his coaching role in the MLS while Brown will leave Celtic after becoming a Hoops icon over 14 trophy-laden years. The pair played with each other while at Hibs.

Atlanta United have close ties with Aberdeen. Club president Darren Eales sits on Aberdeen’s board while Dons chairman Dave Cormack is based in Atlanta, both side’s sharing a strategic partnership. Now Glass could come across the water from America with Brown joining him as assistant manager from Celtic.

Aberdeen were beaten 1-0 on Saturday by Dundee United during interim manager Paul Sheerin’s first game in charge, defender Andy Considine demanding better: “I don’t think we’ve been getting much luck for a while now and in terms of goals, we need something to go for us.


“I thought we played well, the work we’ve done in the last two weeks was positive, but we need to score the goals the play deserves. We had chances but Ross McCrorie’s header at the end sums up the way things are going for us, a free header from six yards and it doesn’t go in.

“We’ve all been guilty of that over the weeks, we all have to take responsibility. It will come but we need to keep going and keep playing positively, the way we did in this game.”
