Willie Miller has urged Aberdeen to go and get Atlanta United man Stephen Glass and Celtic captain Scott Brown now – if that’s who they want to form the management team.

A former Don, Glass has been heavily linked with replacing Derek McInnes as Aberdeen manager after the 49-year-old’s eight years in charge. With him would come Celtic captain Brown as player-assistant manager, the pair playing together at Hibs.

Glass is currently reserve team manager at Atlanta United, where he took interim charge last year. Aberdeen also have a strategic partnership with the MLS club through chairman Dave Cormack, who is being urged by Miller to get his men.

Miller said: “My advice to the chairman is go and get them and put them in place. Take advantage of the uncertainty at Celtic Park, if they think Stephen Glass is the man then go and get him. Get his team and give him the opportunity between now and the end of the season to work with the players and build for the new season.

“I am a little bit surprised that a permanent manager won’t be named before the end of the season. I thought Dave Cormack would have had a name or a team in mind to put in place. That being said it is a huge challenge to whoever gets the job because Derek McInnes has been pretty successful in his tenure at Aberdeen.

“I think at some point Scott would want to be a manager but there are some players who are happy to be assistants. I don’t think Scott has that type of personality.”
