Aberdeen urged to make move for ex-Man Utd boss Solskjaer

Aberdeen are being urged to make a move for sacked Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Dons are on the hunt for their new coach after sacking Stephen Glass earlier this month, with former Celtic midfielder Barry Robson taking temporary charge.

Solskjaer has been out of work since leaving Old Trafford in November and Nicholas thinks he is an ideal candidate for Sir Alex Ferguson's former club.

"If Aberdeen really want to make a statement they should go and make an attempt to speak to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer," Nicholas told the Scottish Daily Express.

"I was thinking about managerial options for my old club and I would love them to go out and make a real statement of intent.

"Why not go and ask the former Manchester United manager if he is interested? He can only say no, but if you don't ask you don't get.

"People might say he has just managed one of the biggest clubs in the world, why would he even consider Aberdeen?"

Solskjaer returned to Molde in October 2015 and remained there until United came calling in December 2018.

Nicholas added: "I know and I get that but if you look at Solskjaer's CV away from United it has been at the likes of Molde and Cardiff.

"They are clubs who are of similar size and potential to Aberdeen. Why not show some ambition? Go and see if you could get a big-name to reignite the fire at Aberdeen again."
