Derek McInnes: Disappointed Aberdeen did not take their chances

Niall McGinn scored the only goal at Pittodrie after four minutes, before the Dons squandered several chances to put a gloss on the result.

McInnes said: "I thought we were worthy winners. Jamie Langfield hasn't had a save to make the whole game, but we made it more difficult than it had to be at times.

"We started with a real tempo and a bit of aggression about us. We couldn't have asked for a better start with Niall's finish. You can see why he's been so important to us.

"A real piece of quality won us the game, but we were wasteful and it should have been put to bed long before the 90 minutes were up.

"Kilmarnock, as they do, had plenty of possession of the ball and forced us to put an extra body in the middle of the park.

"But where we're falling short at the moment is putting the ball in the back of the net."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
