Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass is “hopeful” he can keep Calvin Ramsay and Ryan Hedges at Pittodrie beyond the end of the transfer window amid strong interest in the Pittodrie duo.
The Dons have rejected a bid from Serie A side Bologna for Ramsay while Hedges has been linked with a move south of the border to join Blackburn.
However, the Aberdeen boss wants to come out of the transfer window with a stronger squad than he started with as he confessed his hope to keep Ramsay and Hedges a little bit longer at least.
“I’m hopeful,” Glass said. “We want to keep our best players at the club but the club’s in total control of all those situations.
“We’ll see what happens, I think we’ve got six or seven days left.
“It’s important that we finish stronger than when we started and that’s always been the aim.”
After seeing his side lose 1-0 to St Mirren last night thanks to Conor Ronan’s strike, Glass wasn’t happy with his players – insisting the performance in Paisley wasn’t good enough.
The Dons blew the chance to jump into fourth place in the Premiership table and Glass demanded more from his squad moving forward.
“The players themselves know it wasn’t good enough,” Glass fumed.
“As a group, we’ve got to be better than that and there’s a feeling we need to put it right on Saturday already and that’s the hunger you want in the group.
“We didn’t do nearly enough on the night, there was a huge travelling support and we let them down.
“There was a lot that annoyed me tonight. Simple giveaways in areas we shouldn’t be giving the ball away, not creative enough when we had plenty possession.
“You get punished by teams when you do those things.”
