Aberdeen have made an approach for ex-English Premier League manager Chris Wilder ahead of their visit to Celtic Park. The Pittodrie club are without a manager following Jim Goodwin’s dismissal last month and with fourth place and European football not outwith the realms of possibility this season, Dave Cormack is backed to make an ambitious move for Wilder.
According to a report from the Daily Record, the former Sheffield United manager has been approached by the Dons hierarchy as they look to make an appointment in the coming days. Wilder
Celtic host Aberdeen on Saturday 18th February as the Scottish Champions return to Cinch Premiership duty. While Ange Postecoglou’s team face St Mirren at the weekend, Aberdeen have a weekend off in which they will look to make an appointment.
In the two meetings between the sides this season, Celtic have been victorious in both. On the opening day of the season, goals from Stephen Welsh and Jota resulted in a 2-0 win. Whilst in December, Celtic edged out a turgid 1-0 win against the Dons thanks to a stunner from Callum McGregor.
Aberdeen supporters will be concerned that Jesse Marsch’s dismissal from Leeds will result in Wilder being linked with the move to Elland Road.
