DONS assistant boss Tony Docherty today claimed there was never any danger of the “rubbish on social media” wrecking the team spirit at Pittodrie.
Aberdeen halted a run of six games without a win by beating Dundee United 2-0 at Pittodrie in the Premiership at the weekend.
Docherty admitted they were helped by the fact manager Derek McInnes refused to allow fictional tales of unrest in the Aberdeen dressing room to affect the way they were preparing for their matches.
He said: “To be honest we never paid too much attention to any of the nonsense. We were too busy focusing on what we need to be doing to win football games.
“We don’t have time to waste on things that we have no control over.
“The only thing we can affect is what happens behind closed doors at Pittodrie.
“We knew all the stuff that was being written and said was a load of rubbish.
“It was never going to be allowed to damage the strong camaraderie that exists at the club.
“It’s the best I have seen at any club I have worked for. We are very close and all working for the same thing, which is to bring success to the club and the Aberdeen fans.”
