Aberdeen chairman Stewart Milne admitted his club was struggling after it became the first Scottish side to be knocked out of the UEFA Cup by Irish opposition - but still backed manager Ebbe Skovdahl.

The Dons won 1-0 on the night but the 2-1 home defeat in the first leg of their UEFA Cup qualifier meant Bohemians went through.

And, despite the defeat, Milne believes the Pittodrie side are on their way back and that the Dane can rebuild the team.

He said Skovdahl had started to rebuild the squad, bringing in seven or eight players last year and investing in a very good crop of young players.
