Robson on ticket allocations, resting players, and tough PAOK test

Tyrone Smith, BBC Sport Scotland

Aberdeen manager Barry Robson has been talking to the media before his side's Europa Conference League clash with PAOK tomorrow.

Here are the key points from his press conference:

  • Robson wouldn't be drawn into a conversation about Aberdeen's ticket allocation for the Viaplay Cup final, instead choosing to focus on the PAOK game.

  • When asked if he might rest players with so many big domestic games approaching, Robson said that they "want to win every game", but they "do have to manage players as best we can".

  • Insists that Aberdeen "have not got the results we deserved" in Europe so far this season. "Nobody can change my mind about that."

  • Admits it will be a tough test for him and his players in Thessaloniki, but says they "have got to believe".

  • Robson didn't get drawn into a war of words with PAOK head coach Razvan Lucescu, who earlier criticised Nicky Devlin's celebrations in the game at Pittodrie. Robson said it was the first he had heard of it, and added he has "a lot of respect" for Lucescu and PAOK.
