Derek McInnes gives Aberdeen advice to Stephen Glass as he makes pointed 'support' remark

Daily Record 17/04/2021 Gabriel McKay

Derek McInnes believes Stephen Glass has been given a great opportunity at Aberdeen but warned his successor it's a "tough gig".

The former Dons midfielder takes charge of his first match on Saturday, as his side face Livingston in the Scottish Cup.

Glass came in to replace McInnes after his departure by mutual consent, and the former boss had some words of wisdom for the new man.

He said on Premier Sports: "It's a brilliant club, it's a great opportunity for any young manager if you get that support which Stephen is clearly going to get.

"I think that will be important to him it is a tough gig, the Aberdeen job, when it doesn't go well.

"You've got to make sure you're strong with that and make sure you keep the strength in your players and keep them focused, keep them on the right track, never get too high and never get too low.

"Cup competitions obviously offer the best opportunity for a club like Aberdeen to go and be successful.

"We managed to win one cup and my biggest regret here is we never managed to win more.

"Out of 15 cup competitions we got to the semi-final 11 times and went on to five finals but we never quite managed to add to that silverware.

"That would have been extra special. Doing it once was great, doing it twice even better.

"The club here is geared to be successful and with this group of players I thoroughly believe Aberdeen should be looking at this competition as a real chance."
