Aberdeen director of football Willie Miller has stressed boss Craig Brown is not facing the sack despite the Dons having won only once this season in nine attempts. They are second bottom of the table, just a point clear of Inverness.
"Fans should ignore any talk of Craig being under pressure and in danger of being sacked," Miller said.
"It's a load of scaremongering nonsense. We have a history of supporting managers through good times and bad and that will remain the case.
"The last week or so hasn't been pleasant whether you are a fan, director, manager, player or one of the many other people working tirelessly behind the scenes at Pittodrie.
"What we have always done in times of adversity is band together and make a united effort to improve our situation.
"Others have talked of Craig being under pressure, not us. He and Archie Knox are the most experienced managerial team anyone could have.
"We have total trust in them eventually delivering the winning Aberdeen team that we all yearn for. None of us are happy to see Aberdeen sitting in second bottom spot in the SPL after nine games. It's not where we want to be and it's certainly not where we expect to be at this stage but it's a retrievable situation."
