New Aberdeen boss McInnes wants to 'inspire city' by dipping into transfer market

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes says he will get busy in the summer transfer window in order to push the club back into the top six.

The former St Johnstone and Bristol City boss is planning to reshape things at Pittodrie Stadium after replacing Craig Brown in the Dons hot seat and will begin by bringing in some quality players in the offseason.

"Every manager who has come here in recent years has said the same thing - they want to bring the good times back," said McInnes.

"The way I see it is we need to get the city to fall in love with their club again.

"We need to inspire the city, make them believe in us and come and see us.

"We want to make progress in the league next season and drive the club forward.

"How many players I bring in will depend on how many leave. I don't have a number in my head right now. As a new manager I will want to freshen things up.

"We won't be bringing in players for the sake of it. But we'll get an idea about the boys here as we go along.

"I'm not long finished playing myself and I know they'll not be feeling very good about themselves at the moment.

"It's a heavy burden being labelled underachievers and they will be hurting."
