BARRY Robson today claimed there is no panic at Pittodrie after suffering a heavy 5-1 loss to St Johnstone.
The Saints shocker was Aberdeen’s third successive defeat.
In a disastrous run of losses, the Dons crashed out of the League Cup 2-0 to Hibs and surrendered a 100% league run with a 2-1 reverse at Inverness.
Robson admitted he is “annoyed” and “disappointed” at the manner of the Saints loss, the Reds’ heaviest defeat in Derek McInnes’ time at Pittodrie.
However, he called for perspective and emphasised, despite the defeat, Aberdeen are still top of the Premiership table, with 24 points from a possible 30.
He said: “There is no panic as we are still top of the league and got there playing some of the best football I have seen.
“There is disappointment all round at this loss, but never take away from the fact the boys have been terrific this season.
“Give credit where credit is due as we are still sitting top of the Premiership, albeit we are out of the League Cup.
“However, there is still the Scottish Cup and we have the best points tally we have had at this stage for about 20 years.
“So lets put things into perspective.
“We are in a great position with a strong squad and confidence is high so we will look at it from a positive angle.”
