McGhee Has To Make The Right Changes

28 March 2010 02:30
Aberdeen won finally at the 12th attempt yesterday and Mark McGhee knows what he has to do to carry on Mark McGhee plans to have a good clear out in the summer and says he will deserve to be sacked if his plans do not turn the club around. McGhee has announced that up to 10 players will be moving on from Pittodrie in the summer. He bought some breathing space from his critics yesterday with a win over the Buddies after ending an 11-game winless run beforehand. Like most managers he has to work within financial constraints which he suggests are mitigating circumstances for the Dons slumping to eighth in the table. However, McGhee is well aware where the buck will stop if the club find themselves in a similar position this time next year.McGhee said: "I got the sack at Wolves, got the sack at Millwall, got the sack at Brighton - it's something managers get. Now, in those circumstances, I got it after being successful first and then things changed and I had no problem with that. Were I to get the sack now, what can I do about it? What? I'd think, 'What was my part in that?' I'd find things, sure. Could have done this, could have done that. But, really, it's out of my hands. I don't have any fear that the board will buckle, but if it happens, it happens. I know for sure that in a year's time, if I've made the changes I want to make and the results are the same then I'll be down the road and I'll deserve it. No problems with that at all. But let's make the changes first. I don't have any regrets about taking this job. I've been frustrated by the way it's gone. I won't argue that it's not as good as I hoped it would be. I'm culpable as well. I'm not going to fudge that one. I know I've got to prove myself and that's what I'm in the process of doing."
