McGhee Gets Stay Of Execution

ABERDEEN FC has announced that the board of directors plan to spend the next few days discussing Mark McGhee's future.

A statement issued today - reported on the BBC Sport website, but not yet officially announced by AFC - said: "The board of directors will have further meetings and discussions regarding Mark McGhee over the next couple of days.

"No decision has yet been taken on the manager's future," it added.

This means that McGhee will almost certainly be in charge as usual when the team heads to Ibrox for a fixture that the Dons haven't won for almost 20 years.

It also seems clear that the Dons hierarchy are having difficulty agreeing upon whether or not McGhee is the man rescue the club from its current malaise.

McGhee himself is plainly not going to walk away from the task, and showed commendable passion during interviews last night - and he believes the majority of the fans are behind him.

After the Caley Thistle defeat, he said: "We were all holding our breath to see what the reaction from the fans would be like and I was getting told about this and that on websites and fanzines.

"But from the moment I walked out onto the pitch until the end of the match when we have lost 2-1 all I heard was encouragement.

"As long as that is the case I'm still up for the job. I still believe we are going to get better and since I got here I said we would need three or four transfer windows to turn it around. I still see a way forward and a positive future for this club."

Have your say on whether Mark McGhee should stay or go in this week's poll: It runs till Friday 12th November.
