Aberdeen have sacked manager Stephen Glass after only eleven months in charge at Pittodrie.
The Dons board have acted following yesterday’s Scottish Cup defeat at Motherwell saw fans turn on Glass and his players at full-time.
Glass replaced Derek McInnes in March of last year but has struggled to get results at Pittodrie, with Aberdeen currently sitting ninth in the table.
Having been brought back to Aberdeen from Atlanta United’s reserve side, Glass added the likes of Scott Brown and Christian Ramirez to his squad but has failed to see his side put together a run of results.
Speaking after the Scottish Cup defeat yesterday, Glass was confident he had the backing of the Pittodrie board – but it seems that confidence was misplaced, with the axe falling this morning.
I think I’ve got the backing of the board,” Glass said. “I’ve certainly got the backing of the players, but you’re asking the question for a reason.
“This club’s seen what happens when you chop and change managers every couple of years like they did when I was playing. You end up where you shouldn’t be.
“There’ll be a lot of flak flying about, most of it in my direction, but I’ll protect the players and we’ll try and win.”
The likes of Jack Ross and Neil Lennon are likely to be in the running to replace Glass at Pittodrie, with the Dons facing St Johnstone on Tuesday night.
