  • He notes Hacken have real quality and "players that are moving for millions".

  • Aberdeen have to be at their best to win the game and patience will be required in front of a packed Pittodrie crowd.

  • With regards to more ins or outs before the transfer window shuts he says "maybe" and the club are "looking at things".
