Barry Robson to Stay as the Interim Manager of Aberdeen until Summer
Barry Robson, the interim manager of Aberdeen, has been asked by the board to lead the team until the end of the Scottish Premiership. The former Scotland international replaced Jim Goodwin in January 2022 and has already helped move the side up the rankings with four wins from six games played. Steve Agnew will continue as Robson’s assistant while the club sets its sights on third place in the Scottish Premiership, just four points behind third-placed Hearts. Aberdeen’s recent 3-0 victory over their rivals has put them back in contention for a shot at a European Group spot, which will likely be achieved with a third-place finish.
Aberdeen’s Resurgence: Can They Catch Hearts for Third?
As Hearts’ recent decline gives Aberdeen an opening in the table, experts are calling it a “resurgence” under interim manager Barry Robson. Aberdeen’s new victory is due partly to the performance of striker Duk, who has scored four goals since Robson took over. Aberdeen, struggling with recruitment, will aim to get their house in order, secure their position in the table and catch up with Hearts, who lead them by only four points. If they do, Robson may be in the running for a permanent role as the club’s manager.
