Aberdeen have been linked with a shock move for Celtic captain Scott Brown – if Stephen Glass is appointed as Dons boss.
The Celtic legend’s Parkhead contract is coming to a close in the summer and it is currently unknown whether he will continue playing next season. Both Aberdeen and the Glasgow club are without a manager at present.
Stephen Glass is thought to be the frontrunner for the Dons manager’s job after Derek McInnes left earlier this week after eight years in charge. Glass is a former player, winning the 1995 League Cup at Pittodrie, and is the reserve team manager of MLS club Atlanta United.
Dons chairman Dave Cormack has built a strategic partnership between Aberdeen and Atlanta, Ronald Hernandez heading to America on loan from the Granite City earlier this season. Glass is also a former teammate of Brown at Hibs.
It’s reported that if made Aberdeen manager, Glass would want the current Celtic captain by his side as player-assistant manager. It’s prompted a mix reaction to what would be an unexpected move.
Actually, maybe Scott Brown as your Assistant Head Coach is what they mean when they say 'be careful what you wish for'.

The folk accepting or even wanting Scott Brown are no doubt the same ones who were happy for us to continue playing a rangers player. Utter embarrassments. Bar Ryan Jack I don’t think there’s a player in world football I’d want further away from the club than him

Personally I'm quite excited about a Stephen Glass and Scott Brown managerial partnership at the Dons pic.twitter.com/VB8iltJ18V

Again, I doubt Scott Brown will be at Aberdeen, but if the hierarchy at the club think he'll move us forward, why wouldn't we have him here?
Why are folk so against it?

Scott Brown to Aberdeen. The Aberdeen fans should be happy, he's a winner. Fresh challenge for Aberdeen and him as coach, can only be good

I was totally against John Terry being Assistant manager at Villa but he has turned our defence into a unit that hardly concedes and I’ve totally changed my mind on him….. I can see the same happening with Scott Brown if he does cone to the Dons.. I would give it a chance!
