Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass has opened up on talks over Ryan Hedges contract and admits the Dons star was disappointed not the grab a hat-trick in last night’s win over Livingston at Pittodrie.

Hedges is out of contract in the summer and Glass hinted there doesn’t appear to be a speedy resolution on the horizon with the Welshman taking his time to mull over the next move in his career.

“We’re trying, you can take a horse to water…” Glass admitted.

“He was good but disappointed he didn’t get two or three goals tonight. He was in good positions and if you take the goalkeeper out the net would be bursting.”

Despite Hedges’ disappointment, Glass was happy with his side’s performance as they recorded a comfortable win over Livingston at Pittodrie.

Goals fro Hedges and David Bates sealed a 2-0 win and the Aberdeen boss was full of praise for his side’s defense as he challenged them to repeat the performance this weekend St Mirren.

“It was as comfortable as you can be against Livingston. In the first half we were excellent but when you go in only a goal up it’s always dangerous.

“The way we started the second half wasn’t great but when they went down to 10 men it did feel comfortable but you are always on edge with the run we have been on.

“Anytime they get free kicks and corners they are dangerous and you have to be on your guard but the boys defended brilliantly when they had to and we are pleased with the night’s work.

“We played the ball forward and were clinical. We’ve done a lot of work on that this week and it is always nice when it comes to fruition in the game.

“We were aiming to take six points this week and we’ve taken three. Now we are looking to finish it off.”
