Is Aberdeen boss Mark McGhee staying put following 9-0 defeat at the hands of Celtic?

McGhee needs his side to bounce back quick following their 9-0 defeatAberdeen Manager Mark McGhee has said that he does not want to be drawn into questions as to whether he will leave the Scottish club following the team’s disastrous 9-0 away defeat at Celtic Park on Saturday other than that he was "highly embarrassed". Both teams were reduced to 10 men by the 35th minute of the SPL game but Celtic were already winning the game by 3-0 at this point, but there was total collapse from the Aberdeen squad who gave away a further two penalties and failed to gain any real possession of the ball and therefore there were very little attempts on the Celtic goal.

Following the defeat there was a rushed boardroom meeting at Pittodrie in the aftermath of the teams worst defeat in their 107 year history, their worst previous defeat was also against Celtic in the 1989/90 season when they were defeated 8-0 at home.

Currently Aberdeen are sitting at ninth spot in the Scottish Premier League with 10 points from 11 games. McGhee has been in charge of the squad since 2009 when he took over the role from Jimmy Calderwood who was surprisingly sacked by Aberdeen in May 2009 just hours after he took to fourth place in the league and had got the team back into Europe. Under McGhee’s Aberdeen have played 57 games and won just 17 of them which has caused unrest amongst the fan base.

Aberdeen's next game is against Inverness CT tomorrow evening and are with bookmakers Ladbrokes at odds of 11/8 to win the match, the draw is 9/4 and an away win for Inverness is at odds of 2/1.

Whether the board will change their mind remains to be seen as they are currently behind the manager but as soon as this changes we will have the odds for the next Aberdeen manager here.
