Neil Warnock is among three candidates being considered for the interim Aberdeen manager position until the end of the season. The 75-year-old, previously at Huddersfield Town and with spells at Crystal Palace, Queen’s Park Rangers, Leeds United, and Middlesbrough, is being evaluated for the temporary role. Aberdeen aims to make an appointment next week, but Neil Lennon, Jack Ross, and Alex Neil, linked with the long-term job, are not in contention for the interim position.
The club is undergoing a comprehensive review of its football operations, involving elite performance consultants, covering everything from the academy to the first team. Following Barry Robson’s dismissal, Peter Leven, the first-team coach, is currently in charge. The team is currently eighth in the Scottish Premiership, just two points away from the top six.
Former Aberdeen captain and manager Willie Miller expressed concerns about the club’s approach, particularly the need for external consultants. Miller suggested that the need for external consultants indicates a lack of knowledge and responsibility within the club’s leadership. The focus on consultancy raises questions about the club’s understanding of its own situation and its ability to make informed managerial decisions.
