Aberdeen board to make decision shortly on Mark McGhee future at the clubby Steve Claridge / 11 November 2010, 10:13Tweet
The Aberdeen managers woes continue this week as his side again faced defeat, this time at the hands of Inverness CT on Tuesday evening in a match he desperately needed to win to secure his position of manager of the Scottish Premier League side. Inverness won the game 2-1 with a first half penalty from Adam Roone created by Yoann Folly pushing Grant Munro in full view of the referee. Aberdeen got back on track in the second half from a goal by Andrius Velicka but the game was sealed by Inverness in the 81st minute from a Grant Munro header. All this was done in front of an attendance of less than 6,000 nervous supporters.
After Mark McGhee's side suffered the embarrassing 9-0 defeat by Celtic at the weekend the pressure was on the Dons boss to have recorded a win in this match. Despite the poor result McGhee has vowed to remain on as manager of the club. This choice may be taken away from him by the board of directors at Pittodrie as they will be meeting in the next few days to make a decision on the future of the under fire manager.
The next game for Mark McGhee is away at top of the table Rangers where a win for his side is very unlikely and a loss here is to be expected. The bookmakers Bet365 are giving his side odds of 12/1 to win and 12/5 for the draw, the likely Rangers win is at 10/11.
Aberdeen have now slipped to 11th place in the SPL, just one point above bottom club Hamilton, the side have collected just 10 points from 12 games this season.
