Aberdeen appoint Robson interim manager after Goodwin sacking
Aberdeen have appointed Barry Robson as interim first team manager following Jim Goodwin's sacking.
Development phase manager Robson will be assisted by Steve Agnew, with whom he worked with at Middlesbrough, and development phase coach Scott Anderson as the club search for a new permanent manager.
The interim coaching staff will take their first training session on Monday ahead of the visit of St Mirren to Pittodrie in the cinch Premiership on Wednesday.
Aberdeen, who sit seventh in the table, say "an update on the search for a new manager will be communicated in due course".
The statement added: "The club has acted swiftly to put in place an interim coaching team to oversee first team matters until a new manager is appointed.
"In the meantime, everyone at the club will get behind Barry and his coaching team who are fully focused on getting the team back on-track to achieving our goal of European football next season."
