McGhee on brink as Aberdeen lose in Highlands

Under pressure McGhee

By Leighton Craig and Craig Alexander

Mark McGhee is refusing to resign following a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the highland derby.

This comes just three days after a record 9-0 defeat by Celtic at Celtic Park.

Support is dwindling for Mark McGhee with an attendance of just 5,197 at Pittodrie, however McGhee believes he still has a future at the club.

He said: “The feeling I got from the fans tonight is that they want me here, so I’m quite happy about that.”

Aberdeen have struggled under Mcghee gaining a mere 4 points out of a possible 30.

However, it is unclear whether the board will continue to back the former Aberdeen and Celtic striker after issuing an ultimatum following the weekends humiliating result.

When asked if he thought he had the boards backing McGhee said: “So far they have, and that’s brilliant.”

Pressure is mounting with the forthcoming fixture against top of the league Rangers at Ibrox which is sure to be yet another tough test for Aberdeen and McGhee.

McGhee is currently at his 7th club following a successful spell at Motherwell and rejected a potential move to Edinburgh side Heart Of Midlothian two years ago prior to joining Aberdeen.
