Fulham coach Billy McKinlay is in the frame for the Aberdeen job.

The Scottish Sun says McKinlay is understood to be among the contenders for the post which will become vacant when Craig Brown quits this summer.

Ironically, Brown is likely to back a move for the 43-year-old.

He took McKinlay to the 1998 World Cup as a player and he faced Brazil in the Paris opener under him - and Brown, who'll have a say in his successor's identity, is an admirer of his coaching talents.
