Next Aberdeen Manager Odds: Jim Goodwin, Jack Ross, Neil Lennon and Derek Adams linked

Former Hibernian manager Jack Ross is being linked

Aberdeen are searching for their third manager in a year after the tenure of Stephen Glass was brought to an end on Sunday. 

Former Dons player Glass, who was recruited from Atlanta United 2 as the replacement for long-serving manager Derek McInnes, spent 11 months in charge of the club who he leaves 9th in the table.

The decision came after the weekend's Scottish Cup exit to Motherwell, with Aberdeen winning only one of their seven matches in all competitions in 2022. In total Glass oversaw just 14 wins from 41 matches.

Who will the club turn to next?

Football Tips

Barry Robson named interim manager

Former Dons midfielder and Under-18s boss Barry Robson has been named interim manager, and will be assisted by Scott Brown, Neil Simpson, and Scott Anderson. 

Robson, who has aspirations of becoming a head coach, features as one of the early contenders in the betting at 5/1 with Bet Victor, and has the opportunity to stamp a win on the board tonight (Tuesday) when Aberdeen host St Johnstone.

"What we will try and do is bring a bit of thunder back,” Robson said ahead of Tuesday’s clash.

"I said to the players, when things aren't going well, sometimes you just have to work harder, run harder and be a good team-mate and try and simplify your game a wee bit. It's amazing how far that can take you sometimes."

Jim Goodwin an early frontrunner

Jim Goodwin has emerged as one of the early frontrunners in the betting at 5/2.

In charge of St Mirren since 2019, Goodwin took his side to 7th in the table last season - their highest finish in over 30 years - and through to the semi-finals of both domestic cup competitions. 

The Paisley outfit are currently in cracking form having won six and lost none of their last seven matches in all competitions. Unbeaten this year, Goodwin has his side 6th in the table, just a point off the top-four with a game in hand.

Meanwhile, in his first job in management the talented young boss, 40, led Alloa Athletic into the Scottish Championship then preserved their second-tier status.

A return for Derek Adams?

One name to pay particular attention to is Derek Adams, who this morning (Tuesday) left his post at Bradford City.

Adams, who was born in Aberdeen and had two spells there as a player, has had his odds on a return slashed from 25/1 to just 2/1 following his Bradford exit.

It’s fair to say Adams’ spell at the League Two club didn’t quite go to plan, with the 46-year-old winning just nine of his 37 matches in charge following his summer switch from Morecambe.

Adams enjoyed more success at Morecambe and Plymouth, winning promotion into League One with both, while he previously propelled Scottish side Ross County to two league titles en route up into the top-flight, plus a Scottish Cup final.

High-profile out-of-work options

Early out-of-work options include Jack Ross and Neil Lennon.

Reportedly interested in a swift return to the dugout, Ross, who has nearly 300 games under his managerial belt, has emerged as one of the early contenders in the betting at 5/1.

The 45-year-old was working in the Scottish top-flight as recently as December in charge of Hibernian, but was sacked just a week before the Scottish League Cup final due to a “prolonged run of poor results in the league”.

Ross finished 3rd with Hibs last season and took them to the Scottish Cup final too, while he previously led St Mirren to promotion into the Scottish Premiership, and managed Sunderland in League One.

Lennon was recently one of the names in the frame to replace Ross at Hibernian, a job that instead went to Shaun Maloney. Could we now see him link up with his old Celtic captain Scott Brown at Aberdeen?

Lennon, 10/1, has been out of work since leaving Celtic a year ago; a club he led to five league titles and five domestic cups across two spells. Sandwiched in between was a spell at Hibernian who he fired to the Scottish Championship title then 4th in the top-flight.

Could Neil Lennon be an option?
Could Neil Lennon be an option?

Who else is being linked?

Gordon Strachan, who hasn’t managed since leaving Scotland in 2017, can be backed at 12/1 to return to the Dons as manager. As a player Strachan helped the club win two league titles, three Scottish Cups, the European Cup Winners' Cup, and the European Super Cup.

Grant McCann has had an eventful start to the month, from losing his job at Hull following the club’s takeover to being one of the main contenders for the vacancy that opened up at Sunderland.

The Black Cats ended up appointing Alex Neil but could McCann, who won League One last season, become a contender for the opening at Aberdeen? The Northern Irishman, 41, can be backed at 20/1 in the betting.

Former Newport manager Michael Flynn is also available at 20/1, with the likes of Jaap Stam and Bodo/Glimt boss Kjetil Knutsen priced at 25/1.
