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.
