JIM GOODWIN has revealed that he spoke to Scott Brown last night and cannot wait to start working with him during training on Monday.

The former Celtic veteran missed today’s clash with Motherwell with a hamstring injury.

He has been linked with a move to replace Goodwin at St. Mary’s – although Sunsport revealed today that Steven Nesmith is also a serious contender for the job.

Although Goodwin and Brown have not specifically discussed the Senate position, the Irishman says he is willing to work with them and the couple will sit down again to talk in training on Monday.

The Irishman also said he understood the suggestion of St. Maarten fans that he had jumped off a plane in the middle of the season – but said it was a good opportunity to miss out on Aberdeen.

Goodwin said BBC Sports Sound“Listen, I can understand why Scott will be one of the candidates for this role.

“He is clearly far behind in his coaching badges and this is probably the next step in Scott’s path.

“Scott still has a contract with Aberdeen. He is currently out with a hamstring injury and I look forward to seeing him in the group when he is fit again.

“I spoke to him last night. If I’m honest with you, I haven’t spoken to him about St. Marin.

“I just wanted to introduce myself to him. Obviously I know Scott from playing against him and managing him for the last few years but for a new manager it is always important that he is with the new captain. Touch the foundation and I did it and look forward to meeting you on Monday at the training ground.

He added: “Look, this has been a crazy week. Obviously Aberdeen asked permission, finally St. Marin granted it. I spoke to Aberdeen on Thursday evening, everything was settled last night. And confirmed this morning.

JACK ‘N JOHN Ryan Jack and John Lundstram were nowhere near the Rangers team – now they will never be out of it.

I can understand the feelings of St. Marin’s fans.

“I only spent eight years in St. Mary’s and I love the club there.

“I have left behind some wonderful friends and colleagues.

“I wasn’t leaving the door with Paisley, believe me, I knew what effect it would have.

“But the opportunity to join Aberdeen was great.”
