Former Celtic boss Neil Lennon has come out and backed Barry Robson for the Aberdeen job full-time. The Dons interim manager has been the catalyst for their miraculous turnaround in form and fortunes since he replaced the now Dundee United boss, Jim Goodwin in the hot seat in the North East.
Pittodrie was jumping on Sunday afternoon too as they kept this wonderful run going under the ex-Celtic midfielder Robson. It was the first time the Dons had beaten the newest Ibrox club in seven years. It’s a result that the supporters will have been itching for after narrowly missing out the past few times against Mick Beale’s side.
Robson is undeniably in the running for it job permanently now after this stunning spell in charge which places them behind theRangers in third place in the Scottish Premiership rankings. It would be hard for the Aberdeen board and chairman Dave Cormack to ignore the change Robson has brought to this current Reds side.
Lennon has backed the man he worked with as a coach at Parkhead to deliver until the end of the season and insisted it is an audition that will stand him in good stead for the role on a full-time basis. Lennon doubts if anybody could have did a better job than his former colleague and reckons it would be difficult to turn him down after this latest run.
