Aberdeen has announced the sacking of manager Stephen Glass following their exit from the Scottish Cup at the hands of Motherwell. They failed to protect their lead for their fourth loss in five games. Glass replaced Derek McInnes 11 months ago in March 2021. They are currently ninth in the Scottish Premiership this season.
“Stephen has left the Dons with immediate effect alongside coaches Allan Russell and Henry Apaloo,” an Aberdeen statement said after the sacking of Stephen Glass. “The club would like to thank Stephen, Allan and Henry for their efforts and wish them the best in their future careers. The process to appoint a new manager will commence immediately and a further update regarding the club’s interim coaching team will be communicated shortly.”
“It’s disappointing. Queens is a great club and I have enjoyed my time with them as a player and a manager. We all want them to be successful and I wish them well and hope that they have a strong end to the season and stay in the Championship,” Allan Johnston said after leaving his role at Queen of South.
“It’s sad but we are in a results business and four wins in 24 aren’t good enough. The players were giving everything for them, but we felt it was time for a change to try to push us up the table. We would like to thank both Allan and Sandy for their efforts,” chairman Billy Hewitson said.
