Jim Goodwin has been named as the new Aberdeen manager.

The 40-year-old has left St Mirren and signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Dons, replacing Stephen Glass who was sacked this week.

“The opportunity to work at one of the biggest clubs in the country is a dream come true, and I can’t wait to get started," said Goodwin.

“Not only does Aberdeen FC have a great history and fan base, but it also has a clear ambition to be successful both on and off the pitch, an ambition which matches my own. You only need to see the level of investment made at Cormack Park to realise that. 

“I can guarantee everyone connected to Aberdeen FC that I will give my all on a daily basis to ensure the club has the success it so richly craves and deserves.”
