Aberdeen manager latest: Former Dons star joins Jim Goodwin as joint favourite

Derek Adams has been installed as joint favourite to become the next Aberdeen boss.

Bookies have Adams at 2/1 alongside St Mirren boss Jim Goodwin.

The Buddies currently sit in the top six, are in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup and have progressed under their former midfielder.

Jack Ross is just behind in the shortlist to take over from Stephen Glass with odds of 3/1.

The former Hibs manager is currently available since departing Easter Road in December.

Aberdeen are in Premiership action this evening against St Johnstone with Barry Robson in charge on an interim basis, aided by Neil Simpson and Scott Brown.

He revealed that after chats with chairman Dave Cormack he could remain in the position for the weekend's league fixture at Motherwell.

He said: "Why shouldn't Dave Cormack show some ambition and try to get a big name to reignite the fire at Pittodrie?”
