Brown eyes summer changes
Scottish Premier League,
Aberdeen manager Craig Brown is planning a summer clear-out after watching his side lose to Hibs in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
The Dons boss did not hide his frustration as his side failed to end another disappointing season with a place in a cup final when they lost out 2-1 to struggling Hibernian.
He told the Daily Record: "What happened at Hampden only underlined what we already knew - there must be major changes if Aberdeen are to win games like that in the future.
"We must make massive improvements in every department. We have a squad that contains far too many ordinary players.
"We must try to strengthen the squad as urgently as possible and not have a summer like last year when we were bringing in trialists."
Aberdeen, who are currently eighth in the Scottish Premier League with five games remaining, have nine players out of contract at the end of the season while Fraser Fyvie and Kari Arnason have been linked with moves away from Pittodrie.
