Aberdeen set to hand Robson reins until summer
Aberdeen are set to appoint Barry Robson as their manager until at least the end of the season.
The former Dons star stepped up as interim boss after the sacking of Jim Goodwin and has revitalised a team that had slipped into the bottom six of the Premiership.
Four wins from six matches in charge, including three consecutive league wins for the first time in 15 months, have hauled the Pittodrie men back into contention for a European spot.
Aberdeen now sit in fourth place, four points behind Hearts, and Robson and his No. 2 Steve Agnew look set to be rewarded for their good work after constructive discussions with recently-appointed chief executive Alan Burrows.
European football will be secured for next season with a fourth-place finish, although fifth would also be good enough should either Celtic or Rangers win the Scottish Cup.
