Aberdeen have sacked Stephen Glass as manager after the club crashed out of the Scottish Cup.

A 2-1 defeat to Motherwell at Fir Park on Saturday proved to be Glass’ final match in charge of the Dons.

Glass was appointed at Pittodrie in March 2021, having been the head coach of Atlanta United’s second team in the USA.

The departure of Glass was confirmed by Aberdeen on Sunday morning.

The club said that his coaches, Allan Russell and Henry Apaloo, would also be leaving the club.

They added that the process of appointing a new manager would begin “immediately.”

In a statement, the club said: “Aberdeen FC this morning confirms the departure of manager Stephen Glass.

“Stephen has left the Dons with immediate effect alongside coaches Allan Russell and Henry Apaloo.

“The Club would like to thank Stephen, Allan and Henry for their efforts and wish them the best in their future careers.

“The process to appoint a new manager will commence immediately and a further update regarding the Club’s interim coaching team will be communicated shortly.”
