Peter Leven will take charge of Aberdeen against Celtic on Sunday.

The Dons parted with manager Barry Robson on Wednesday, with the side eighth in the Scottish Premiership with six league wins all season.

Former Kilmarnock player Leven and Scott Anderson had been put in interim charge following Robson’s departure, having been part of Robson’s staff, and will now oversee their first game.

Neil Warnock is among those linked with the Pittodrie vacancy.

“Both have worked tirelessly these past few days to oversee training and prepare the squad for Saturday,” Aberdeen said of Leven and Anderson.

“An update on the search for a new coaching team will be communicated in due course, but in the meantime Peter and Scott are fully focused on the cinch Premiership fixture and have the full support of everyone at AFC.”

Meanwhile, Slobodan Rubezic will miss up to 12 weeks but will not require surgery on his injury while fellow defender Stefan Gartenmann will return to training on Friday and be available against Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic.
