Motherwell manager Craig Brown was "very flattered" by interest from Aberdeen but is happy to be staying at Fir Park. Motherwell have issued a statement to announce Brown and his assistant Archie Knox had met with Aberdeen officials to discuss the Dons manager's job, made vacant by Mark McGhee's departure last week, but would not be moving to Pittodrie. Brown confirmed he met with Dons chairman Stewart Milne, chief executive Duncan Fraser and director of football Willie Miller and, while the prospect of the job turned his head, he had no intention of leaving Well. "We're happy here working with Motherwell," Brown told BBC Scotland. "There's a lot happening at Motherwell and we're up for that challenge but we're very flattered that Aberdeen wanted to have a word with us. "I'm not saying it was an Aberdeen offer. Aberdeen are in a process of due diligence, looking at potential replacements for Mark McGhee and it would be dishonest if I said that Archie and I weren't on that list. "We were never actually specifically offered the job. Out of courtesy, we met with Aberdeen. It wasn't a lengthy meeting, but we had a meeting."
