McGhee vows to turn Dons around
Latest news update:
Aberdeen boss Mark McGhee insists he is not afraid of the sack and accepts that he may lose his job if performances do not improve.
The Dons have managed just eight wins from 30 matches in the SPL this term and lie 16 points adrift of Hibernian in fourth in what has been a disappointing campaign to date.
The Dons have an outside chance of finishing in the top six but McGhee accepts that is not good enough and faces the sack if things do not improve next season.
"If Aberdeen don't do a lot better next season I know it's likely I will suffer," said McGhee.
"There are managers who never like to even talk about being sacked. But it's not a word I've ever been scared of because I accepted long ago it's what happens in football.
"I don't want to be sacked by Aberdeen. But I'm in the results business and accept clubs act if they see things aren't going as well as they would like.
"If that happens at Aberdeen and they sack me I won't be any worse a person or manager. It's my job to convince the people at Aberdeen not to treat me that way and I'm certain I will.
"I have no fears for my immediate future. I know what I want to do and how I'm going to go about it. It's been a blow to my pride I haven't been as successful as I would want to be so far but I will put that right."
