Aberdeen legend Willie Miller hopes that the Dons board get behind recent managerial appointment Stephen Glass when it comes to his plans for the summer transfer window.

Miller believes that Glass, who takes over at Pittodrie in the summer, will look to make his own stamp on the playing squad in the summer, as he will be looking to replace players that will be leaving due to their contracts expiring.

Miller wants the board to back the plans that Glass has.

“Targets in the pipeline”

“Glass will have to have more signing targets in the pipeline, because there are a lot of players out of contract at the end of the season” he said (Evening Express).

“That gives him the opportunity to put his own stamp on the squad. He will need backing from the chairman and directors to achieve that” Miller continued.

The former Aberdeen boss hopes that Glass is given time by the board and the clubs’ support to show what he can do in the job at Pittodrie.

Support is vital

“That support is vital when you make a change like this and the task is to lift the support. He needs time to put his own thoughts into practice.

“Hopefully it will be exciting and next season will see the qualities fans are looking for” Miller concluded.

Even though Glass is not taking over until after the end of the season, he will presumably be watching how Aberdeen fare for the rest of the season quite closely. That begins at the weekend when Aberdeen takes on Dumbarton in the Scottish Cup.
