Time at Club:
Derek McInnes was named as the manager of Aberdeen back in March 2013 after the legendary Craig Brown retired. The Dons could only finish 8th come the end of the 2012/13 campaign, but in his first full season in charge McInnes led the club up to 3rd. This season the club have started very brightly, although they may have struggle keeping hold of their boss, who is being linked with the Scotland job.
Aberdeen were once one of the big sides in the Scottish Premier League and have have won some big silverware in their history. Under Sir Alex Ferguson in the 80's Aberdeen swept all before them and won three League titles, four Scottish Cups, one League cup, a European Cup Winners Cup and a European Super Cup in a glorious seven year period.
Since that trophy laden period Aberdeen have struggled to live up to those heights and they have been without a trophy of any kind since 1996 when they won the Scottish League Cup. Current manager Derek McInnes will now be looking to build on last season's 3rd place finish.
A binary run of results has seen Aberdeen rack up 6 wins in the last 10 games, beating Livingston, Heart of Midlothian, St Mirren, Livingston, Rangers & Hibernian. Defeats to Celtic, St Johnstone, Celtic & Motherwell has seen them score 14 at an average of 1.4 goals per game while surrendering 14 (Avg: 1.4)
