Boss Jimmy Calderwood admits he hates Aberdeen being bottom of The SPL.
"It does hurt to be sitting at the foot of The SPL right now,â€ť he told the News of the World. "Iâ€™d be lying if I tried to pretend otherwise. And, yes, I do avoid looking at the table just now because I hate to see us there.
"I had this sneaky feeling St Mirren were going to do something against Rangers last Sunday and when I heard the result I just thought: 'Jesus, thatâ€™s us bottom of the league now'.
"But Iâ€™m also aware I am the guy who has to do something about it and I wonâ€™t be running away from the challenge.
"I donâ€™t wish to sound big-headed but for the last seven or eight years Iâ€™ve probably been the most successful boss outside the Old Firm.
"Iâ€™ve taken Dunfermline and Aberdeen into Europe. Iâ€™ve taken both clubs to semi-finals and Dunfermline to Hampden for a Cup Final.
"Aberdeen have never been out the top six of The SPL since I took over, yet before I came, Iâ€™m told they never had two consecutive top six finishes.
"So I believe I have the necessary experience to get a response from my players which will see us push up the table, especially when you consider we are only six points off third-placed Kilmarnock.
"This is new territory for me because Iâ€™ve never been bottom of the league as a boss. Iâ€™ve been there and experienced it as a player, but never as a manager and itâ€™s something I donâ€™t want to experience for long."
