Joe Miller is not the only man with an Aberdeen connection to be put forward for the vacant Livingston manager`s post. Our veteran striker, Craig Brewster has been touted as John Robertson`s replacement in a move that will disappoint Jimmy Calderwood greatly.

immy wants to tie Brewster up for at least another year as his effect on the pitch so far has been at worth that at least, but no doubt Calderwood has always known that a return to management would be just around the corner for Craig.

hilst Brewster does still look a class act for Aberdeen, he can no longer give everything for 90 minutes although his awareness and hold up skills are just about the best in the league. He could certainly take those skills to a smaller club and combine them with his management role to offer potential chairmen quite an attractive package.

alderwood said of his sought after hit man ‘It doesn’t surprise me that Craig has been linked with the Livi job because he’d do a good job for any team.

He did very well at Inverness and while things didn’t work out at Dundee United he wasn’t fit enough to contribute on the field.

If he opts to play on another season then he’d be an attractive option for an ambitious club given his experience.

There’s certainly no way we would stand in his way if an opportunity came along.

Once you’ve been in management you want to experience it again and I’m sure Brew will get another shot and make the most of it.

I hope he decides to play on for another season at Aberdeen because he’s still very fit and has done well since arriving in January.

But he won’t get until the end of the season to make up his mind. We have to draw up plans for next season.’

rewster would unlikely get another shot at an SPL club or a European run if he left the Dons but at his age, management is his future. If he did go, money would be freed for another player to come in, possibly Dyron Daal on a new contract or someone the management have been keeping tabs on during their extensive scouting missions.

o what do you reckon, how do you feel about the Brewster situation?

hat would be best for Aberdeen and Craig Brewster?
