Aberdeen Caretaker Manager Barry Robson to Remain in Charge Until Summer
Aberdeen are set to confirm that interim manager Barry Robson will continue to lead the team until the end of the current campaign.
The 44-year-old former midfielder initially became the caretaker following Stephen Glass’s sacking in February last year. He then took over Jim Goodwin’s caretaker management team last January.
Since his appointment, Robson has turned the team’s fortunes around, winning four of the six games he has overseen.
Currently in fourth spot, Aberdeen is just four points away from third-placed Heart of Midlothian. In their last game, Robson led the team to a 3-0 victory against Heart at Pittodrie.
Although Aberdeen has been in talks with various candidates about the manager’s position, Robson is set to be given the job until the end of the current campaign.
Robson played for Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Dundee United, Celtic, Middlesbrough, Vancouver Whitecaps, Sheffield United, Aberdeen, and Scotland. He began his coaching career at Pittodrie, overseeing youth development, before becoming caretaker manager.
Robson takes his side to Perth to face St Johnstone on Saturday, seeking a fourth consecutive victory.
