How’s that for starters, says Dons manager
It is not the kind of trophy the Aberdeen supporters crave but manager Derek McInnes believes the Red Army is right to be enthused with the Dons’ start to the season after he picked up the SPFL Premiership manager-of-the-month award for September.
The Reds were unbeaten in the league last month, drawing against St Mirren and defeating Caley Thistle and Partick Thistle, as well as reaching the quarter-finals of the League Cup by demolishing Falkirk 5-0.
It is 14 long years since Aberdeen won anything and McInnes remains grounded yet welcomes the loyal backing from the club's supporters.
