Former Scotland boss set to take charge at Pittodrie. CRAIG BROWN has quit as Motherwell manager after he reopened talks with Scottish Premier League rivals Aberdeen. Brown has walked away from Fir Park a little over 24 hours after pledging his continued allegiance to the club following an approach from the Dons. Brown is now set to be named Aberdeen manager in time for the Dons' Scottish Premier League clash at Hearts on Saturday. A strongly-worded statement by Motherwell criticised Aberdeen's behaviour and expressed surprise at their now-departed management team's decision. It read: "We do wish to make clear that as a Board we believe that the conduct of the board of Aberdeen in this matter has been wholly inappropriate and in clear breach of SPL rules as well as basic courtesy. "At no point did they inform us or seek our permission to speak to critical employees of our club and to seek to entice them to leave our employment. "We realise the desperation they are feeling and the pressure they are under from their fans for their own performance as a board but to go about their business in this way is a matter of gross discourtesy. "It is also conduct which is beneath the integrity we would expect of a club of Aberdeen's stature. "We have raised this matter with the SPL and will pursue the matter vigorously and by all means."
